Co Kho Group's story

Thiet (wearing orange coat with branch in hand) is the elected team leader of Co Kho Group, which consists of eight Thai women. Thiet is 26 years old and married with two children. One is in second grade and the other is just two years old. Thiet lives with her mother-in-law and supports a nephew who is studying in vocational school. Cultivating rice is Thiet family's main production, but it doesn't bring enough income for her family's needs, especially because of the bad harvest. Correspondingly, growing vegetables and cereals, breeding poultry and cattle are additional agriculture activities that her family is doing now. Not only that, Thiet's husband works in the construction field. To increase income, Thiet wants to apply for a loan from Anh Chi Em Program to expand her business. Specifically, she would use a portion of loan to buy piglets. This is Thiet's first loan in the Anh Chi Em Program and she hopes that through this loan, her family's living standard could be improved. She dreams that her children will get the best education, go to university and escape the vicious circle of poverty.
