Ta Mut Village's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to rent farm equipment, purchase petrol for farm equipment, and hire farm staff during harvest time.

Ta Mut Village's story

The featured forrower, San, is 51 years old, married, and supports a family of five (three children). San is a hardworking woman; she plants paddies and bananas, and coconuts as well. Farming has been done through generations, so it runs in her blood.

For the past three years, she has been facing the effects of “Twain snail”, a kind of insect that eats paddies on the farm. The loan will help her purchase the necessary farming inputs such as fertilizers and gas for farm equipment. She will also use the funds to hire laborers who will help her to remove those snails. Therefore, this loan is necessary to invest in San's farm to increase yield.

She plans to open big grocery shops for all the villagers to access with all the stock in the future. To have good deeds, San mostly gives donations in the village monastery.

Ta Mut Village’s main focus is crop farming, as well as other seasonal plantations, such as coconut and banana trees, for additional income.
