Noong Luong 47 Group's story

Thinh, 34, is an ethnic Thai lady who lives in a Thai traditional stilt house with her husband and her two children. Her first child is 9 years old while the other is sill a baby. Where she lives is a remote village in a northern border province of Vietnam, where people earn their main income from agricultural production. In the photo, she stands at the first from the right.

Like other villagers, Thinh works very hard at many additional activities, including cultivating rice and raising chicken, fish, and pigs because she knows that income from agriculture is very unstable.

Recently, Thinh has requested her fourth loan from the Anh Chi Em Program in order to have enough money to buy fingerlings to develop their farm. Thinh shares that fish are a kind of animal that suffer less disease than others, and in fish raising, she can take advantage of the grass around the house to feed the fish. Thinh is satisfied with the training and counseling provided by the program, which has helped her consistently overcome the difficulties in cultivation and animal husbandry in order to make their production more efficient. Thinh hopes that this investment will be as successful as the previous ones, so she can better provide for her family.

Thinh dreams that her family will have an abundant life and that her children will have good jobs with bright futures.
