Na Tau 60 Group's story

Thiet, 29, a young Thai ethnic woman, is a leader of Na Tau 60 Group. She is married and lives with parents-in-law, husband and two children in a stilt house in Dien Bien Province in the northwest of Vietnam.

Like other villagers, Thiet and her husband work hard with many agriculture activities such as growing rice, raising fish, pigs, chickens and ducks to take care of living expenses and school fees for her 17- and 4-year-old sons.

She decided to get a loan from Anh Chi Em Program to buy fish because they are easier to raise and sell than chickens and more profitable. Thiet and her husband have three years experience in raising fish, so they hope that the new business will make a profit soon and they will have money to expand their farm and save for their 17-year-old son to join the university.

Because of her difficult life in the past, Thiet just finished primary school, so she hopes her children will go to school fully and get a better future.

In the picture, Thiet stands on the right.
