Shan Su Village Group's story

This community is located in Shan Su Village, Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy Delta region and consists of 18 (eight male and ten female) village customers, of whom five are CBO (Community Based Organization) members helping to lead the loan program in the area. This loan will help some group members to purchase high-quality feeds (costing $80 for the amount of 100 ducks' feed) that will boost their income from more duck eggs. The other members will use the funds to repair the duck farm (costing $40 or $50 for a 100-duck farm) which needs to be exchanged every year. Shan Su Village mostly focuses on farming and plantation of seasonal vegetables and nipa palms. Besides these, they also raise pigs, ducks and chickens. While in the home the whole day, some housewives both sort out the house chores and open small grocery shops in front of their houses.
