Kan Thar Village Group 1's story

This community is located in Kan Thar Village, Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy Delta region. In this community, there are five CBO (Community Based Organization) members overseeing a group of 24 village customers (6 males, 18 females). This loan will help the villagers purchase ducks as well as high-quality feed (cost: $75 for three different ingredients that need to be mixed).

In Kan Thar Village, there are 307 households and a population of over 2,000, and many of them are crop farmers. As well, they plant seasonal food such as cucumbers, rosella and bananas, which they sell at towns or other villages. As there are streams nearby the houses, they do fishing, too, and export the fish to the city. For additional income, the villagers also raise hens, pigs and ducks.

Above is the picture of four CBO members and two village customers, named as Daw Thu, Daw Zar, Daw Kay, U Htin, U Nyein, and U Hla. Included in the picture, Daw Thu (third from right) is 36 years old and married with two children. Her husband farms on their 3-acre crop farm, and she sells dry food at her small shop. For livestock, she has raised 116 ducks and 10 chickens. As Daw Thu and her husband are busy at their businesses, they have hired a duck farmer, to whom they need to pay $2 per day.

Proximity's loan will enable her to pay for labor costs and purchase better-quality feed that will let them have more eggs.
