Belhengpah Group's story

The lady raising her right hand in the picture is Lhingneichin, who is 36 years old. Her husband is a carpenter and works in house construction. They have two sons and a daughter. Both Lhingneichin and her husband are hard workers.They committed themselves to send their children to school, which they were deprived off in their own childhood because of acute poverty. In 2009, Lhingneichin took a loan from WSDS and started ginger farming because there was high demand in the market and less supply as very few farmers are engaged in ginger cultivation. She not only cultivates ginger, but also sells it by herself in the local market. Its profitability and high demand encourages her to scale up and increase her production. She, therefore, decided to expand the area of her ginger cultivation. For this reason, she wants to hire some laborers and purchase fertilizers and pesticide, which requires capital. She is now asking for a loan for her ginger farming business.
