Htein Ta Piin Village's story

This community is located in Htein Ta Piin Village in Myanmar's Ayeyarwadduy Delta region. In this community, five community based organization (CBO) members oversee a group of fifteen village customers (nine male, six female). This loan will help the community purchase ducks, rebuild their duck farms (the cost is $100 for the whole duck farm and $15 for the stage), and purchase high-quality duck feed (a $22 packet feeds 100 ducks for six days). The villagers mostly are farmers who also raise livestock. In addition to ducks, villagers raise pigs and chicken. Households sometimes open small grocery stores at home for additional income. The above picture shows the CBO leaders from Htein Ta Piin Village. Their names are U Chit, U Soe, Daw Ohm, U The, and U Hla. Included in the picture is U Chit (in the middle), who is 60 years old and divorced. He lives with his daughter and grandchildren. U Chit sometimes works on his two acre crop farm, but he mainly focuses on his duck raising business. Among his 300 ducks, 200 lay eggs every day. Proximity Designs' loan will enable U Chit to buy better feed to increase his egg output, and thus his income.
