Boe Toke Village Group's story

Located in Boe Toke Village, Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy Delta region, this community consists of five CBO members overseeing a group of 16 village customers. Proximity's loan will help group members to purchase the duck feed as well as repair duck farms. After the rainy season the duck farms' roofs are destroyed and the villagers need to renovate them once a year. This costs nearly $100 per roof. In addition to ducks, residents of Boe Toke Village also raise pigs and chickens. Aside from livestock, villagers farm rice paddies. Some also plant vegetables and flowers, which they sell in the town market at harvest. The picture above shows four CBO members, named U Zaw, U Kyaw, U Sein and Daw Pyone. U Zaw (top right of photo) is 38 years old and married with two children. In addition to raising 120 ducks, U Zaw and his family farm seasonal crops, and U Zaw offers barber services to fellow villagers. The price of feed is lower than average right now, so using Proximity's loan to purchase feed will enable him to buy higher-quality feed, boosting income from more egg production and better nourished ducks. Well-nourished ducks means less disease and a higher price when they are sold.
