Lay Eain Kone Village Group's story

Lay Eain Kone Village is located in the Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy Delta region. In this community there are five CBO (Community Based Organization) members overseeing a group of 21 village customers (11 males and 10 females). This loan will help group members purchase ducks or ducklings, repair their duck farms, and purchase high-quality feed such as dry prawns. Lay Eain Kone Village has over 400 villagers. Besides duck raising, many villagers farm rice and fruits and vegetables such as bananas, coconuts and betel. For their savings, many households also raise pigs. Pictured above are the CBO members from Lay Eain Kone Village, named Daw Mar, U Htoo, U Htwe, U Hte and U Zaw. Included in the picture, Daw Mar (in the middle) is 38 years old and married. They have one son who is a secondary student. Daw Mar looks after their family's 110 ducks, while her husband takes care of their small crop farm. Proximity's loan will help Daw Mar's family purchase more ducks and high-quality feed. If the ducks have good nourishment, they will increase their egg production and warrant higher prices at time of sale. This will boost Daw Mar's income, helping pay for her son's continuing education.
