Noong Het 40 Group's story

Tan is the leader of the group named Noong Het 40. In the photo, she is seated on the far right and wearing a red shirt. She is 33 years old and has two children. Her older child is in the first year of high school and the younger one is in primary school. Her family lives happily in a small stilt house in the northwestern mountains of Vietnam. Agriculture is the main source of income in this area.

Tan and her husband work hard every day on their farm by planting rice and raising pigs. They also hire people from their village to work so that they can earn extra income. Unfortunately, all of her pigs died a few months ago after contracting a disease, which was a big hit to her family’s income. In order to pay living costs and her children’s tuition fees, Tan wants to expand her poultry business, but she lacks capital. Tan is a reputable person and has a good repayment history with the Anh Chi Em loan program. She will use her portion of this loan to buy chicks and ducks to raise for eventual resale. Tan believes that her experience with raising livestock will make this investment successful.

In her interview, Tan indicated that she had to drop out of school during grade 5 because of difficult circumstances. She hopes that her children will complete their education and have a bright future.
