Ah Kei Gyi Village Group 2's story

Located in Ah Kei Gyi Village at Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy Delta region, this community includes five CBO members overseeing 18 village customers. This loan will help some of the group purchase both ducks and ducklings that will boost their income from more duck eggs. Some group members will use the funds to buy high quality feed costing $100 for a month's feed and repair the duck farms. Ah Kei Gyi Village has over 140 households and a population of 340; most of the villagers focus on crop farming. They also plant seasonal vegetables and fruit such as coconuts and bananas. For additional income, the households also raise livestock, pigs and ducks. Pictured above are the CBO members of Ah Kei Gyi Village Group 2, named Daw Tin, U Aung, Daw Tin A, Daw Ei and Daw Nwe. Included in the picture, Daw Tin (second from left) is 40 years old and married with four children who are students.
