Noong Het 36 Group's story

Luyen is 52 years old and currently lives with her family of four generations including nine members in a remote village in the northwest of Vietnam. In the photo, she is standing on the far right and wears a light blue shirt.

Luyen, her husband, and children together generate income from many different activities in which the main income comes from some small-scale agricultural production activities such as growing rice, raising buffaloes, cows, pigs, and chicken. Although Luyen and her husband and children always work hard, due to the large number of people, their income is sometimes not enough to cover family expenses and to pay school fees for their children.

Recently, Luyen decided to expand her husbandry model to get more income by taking out a loan from the Anh Chi Em microfinance program. The loan will be used to buy a sow. Luyen shared that raising pigs is quite profitable and does not take much care. She hopes this sow will be healthy, give her many litter pigs, and bring good income.

Luyen hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic will pass quickly so that her children can go to work and earn money and her agricultural products can be sold more easily.
