Nua Ngam 38 Group's story

Bon is almost 50. She is a Thai ethnic minority woman who sits the first from the far right in the photo. Her family of seven members from three generations lives in a narrow traditional stilt house in Dien Bien province. This province is in northwest of Vietnam, where agriculture is the main source of income for people.

Like other villagers, Bon is a farmer. She teaches her son how to plant rice and raise cattle. Now, her son and daughter-in-law are the main providers of income in her family.

Lately the presence of pests and diseases has led to the failure of crops. It has made it more and more difficult for her family.

Not wanting to accept difficulties, Bon decided to take a loan from the Anh Chi Em program to buy a new cow. It will help her on the field, and can be sold later.

Bon believes, with about twenty years of experience in raising livestock, she can use the available food such as grass and straw on the field to reduce the cost. The support in agricultural techniques from the Anh Chi Em program will help this investment to be a success.

Bon plans to use the profit from this investment to invest in the next business activities, and pay tuition fees for two grandchildren at school. She wishes her grandchildren will have bright futures.
