A loan of $950 helped a member to purchase chickens.


Vaopah Group's story

Chongneilhing (the lady raising her hand in the picture), 38 years of age, is blessed with four sons and lives in Motbung. Her husband works in construction as a bricklayer. The income from her husband is just enough to meet the household expenditures but it is difficult to enroll her children in a good educational institution. She wants to give the best education available to her children and is willing to do any work to fulfill this dream. In 2009, she along with her four likeminded friends, formed Vaopah group and took a loan from WSDS. With the loan, she started a poultry farm and earned extra income for the family. From her earnings, she is able to pay off her children's school fees and meet the household day-to-day requirements. She plans to expand her poultry farm by adding more chickens. In addition to her poultry farm, she wants to start weaving in her spare time to generate more income. She is now asking for a loan of INR 10,000 to purchase many more chicks for her poutry business and yarn/thread for weaving.
