Thanh An 49 Group's story

Phuong, 35 years old, is a married Thai ethnic woman who lives with her husband and two school-going children in a small old house made of wood in a remote village in the Northwest of Vietnam.

Phuong has been a farmer since she was very little and has tried so hard to provide for her family. The family relies mostly on agricultural production to earn a living such as growing rice and raising pigs, chickens and ducks.

Before now, her life was really difficult because of the instability of income from agriculture as a result of their old traditional techniques. Since she found out about the Anh Chi Em program, she has been interested in its loan and agricultural training and counseling, which has actually affected her farming and husbandry favorably.

This is the fifth time she has taken a loan from the program, to buy a goat to expand her farming. She dreams that her family will have a more solid new house and always be full of warmth and happiness.
