Ba Gan Chaung Village - Group 1's story
Pictured above are the CBO members from Ba Gan Chaung - Group 1, named (from left to right) Aye, Al, Own, Win and Tin. The featured borrower, Tin, has a 5 acre farm in the Delta region of Myanmar, and like many farmers in this area, income is very low before the harvest season. The loan will help him purchase the necessary farming resources he needs to harvest his crops. Tin is 56 years old, married, and supports a family of four (two children), who are in 9th grade and 10th grade. Part of the family’s income goes towards funding the children's education. Tin and his family hope to send their children to university after they finish high school. The fund will help 26 borrowers in the village. The CBO leaders oversee this group, and they will purchase farming essentials for harvest time with this loan. Ba Gan Chaung - Group 1 Village’s main focus is crop farming, as well as other seasonal foods. They also raise livestock, such as ducks and pigs, and grow plantation crops, such as flowers and lime trees, for additional income.
