A loan helped to buy a buffalo calf to plough the field when the buffalo calf becomes adult.

Nua Ngam 17 Group's story

Ms. Chien is 30-year-old Tay ethnic single mom who has a daughter at the age of 13. She has divorced from her husband for 5 years and currently she lives with her daughter in a small stilt house in a remote village, where agriculture is the main income generating activity of the locals.

Like other villagers, Ms. Chien works very hard at farming and breeding with several activities such as growing rice, corn, cassava, vegetable, raising pig, chicken, duck and fish to provide for her daughter and to send the daughter to school.

This is the seventh time that she has taken out a loan from the Anh Chi Em Program and she will use the loan to buy a buffalo calf to plow the field when the buffalo calf becomes adult. She hopes that the buffalo would facilitate her work at cultivation on the land.

Mrs. Chien dreams that she could provide her daughter a more abundant life with better living condition, better education so that the little girl will have a brighter future and a successful career. In the picture, she wears a red coat and stands on the second line at the first from the right.
