Kan Gyi Kone Village Group 2's story

This community is located in Kan Gyi Kone Village, Myanmar in the Ayeyarwaddy Delta region. In this community, five Community Based Organization (CBO) members oversee a group of 24 village customers (8 males, 14 females). This loan will help some group members purchase young, less costly ducklings while providing funds until the ducks grow and lay eggs after four months. Other group members will use funds to buy high-quality feed for ducklings ($70 per month for 100 ducklings). Kan Gyi Kone Village has over 1,000 villagers; most of the men are farmers. For additional income, some households also have small grocery stores at their home, and raise pigs, ducks and chickens. The picture above shows four CBO members: Daw Cho, Daw Chaw, Daw Yee and Daw Thae. Included in the picture, Daw Cho (second from left) is 47 years old and a housewife. She is blessed with four children, some of whom are in school. Her husband farms at their 14-acre crop farm. Daw Cho takes care of 120 ducks and 300 ducklings. They also raise 9 pigs and 15 chickens. Proximity's loan will enable her to buy 300 ducklings (costing $200) and to increase her income.
