Ma Yann Wa Village Group A's story

The featured borrower, Zaw (pictured center), is married with three children. Two of his children are students and the eldest is a teacher. Zaw farms and plants seasonal foods such as bananas, betel leaves and coconuts. When the weather isn't good, it is very difficult for the farmers during the cropping period. Therefore Zaw hopes to make more improvements in the farm this year. Proximity's loan will help Zaw purchase fertilizer and gas for the harvesting machines. Pictured above are the members from Ma Yann Wa Village Group A, named Thet, Thant, Than and Ni. The group is overseen by a CBO leader and the fund will help each member purchase fertilizer and crop seeds. Ma Yann Wa Village is located in Ayeyarwaddy Delta Region in Myanmar. Most families focus on crop farming and raising livestock. They also plant seasonal foods such as coconuts and betel leaves for additional income.
