A loan of $1,475 helped a member to pay for chicks to raise and sell.

Lenchonghoi Lom Group's story

Chongboi says, “To raise five kids without a regular income is challenging when your husband serves as a pastor in a small village church.” Chongboi narrates the hardship she faces in managing the family's affairs. Chongboi is the featured borrower member of the Lenchonghoi Group. She is featured with her hand raised. She shares that it is lucky to be married to a pastor but not so lucky when it comes to running the family.

Chongboi joined Lenchonghoi Group in the year 2009 and started earning money by engaging herself in piggery. Chongboi uses piggery as a main source of income for the family. She sells the fully grown pigs and then buys new piglets again to raise them. She is well experienced in piggery technique now. She sells the fully grown pigs in the village and neighbouring villages. She provides school fees, text-books, school uniforms, and study materials for all the five children and now she aspires to start a poultry business with a new loan.

With the Kiva loan, she will buy chicks and construct a chicken coop. She will ask her fellow member friend to teach her the practices to raise chickens (her friend's poultry is shown in the group photograph). She is excited and looking forward to the next loan. She sends all the lenders good wishes and thanks you.

The rest of the group members are engaged in piggery, weaving, poultry and ginger farming. All the other members are also very hard working women and strive hard to lead an independent life.
