Thanh Yen 46 Group's story

Thien, 45, is a Thai woman who is married and the mother of two daughters. She lives with her husband in a Thai traditional stilt house in a poor village. Thien has been a member of the Anh Chi Em program for 10 loan cycles and now her family life has improved. Her two daughters are already married and have stable careers. Even so, Thien and her husband still work hard to help keep the household economy growing.

Every day, Thien works on her farm doing several activities, such as growing rice and raising chickens, ducks, buffalo and pigs. Wishing to expand the breeding model, Thien continue take this eleventh loan from Anh Chi Em to buy a cow. She is satisficed with Anh Chi Em's training on breeding techniques and counselling, so she believes the cow will grow up fast and deliver many calves.

Thien is grateful to the Anh Chi Em program and Kiva lenders who helped her succeed today! In the picture, she stands first from the right.
