Na Sang 1 Group's story

Ly is a 34-year-old woman of Lao minority. She is living with her father, younger brother, who is 20 years old, and her child, who is 6 years old. When her child was born, she divorced her husband because he was using opium drug. Despite financial difficulties, she sends her child to school.

Ly and her father and her brother are working as farmers. They're planting rice, cereal, vegetables and coffee, and raising pigs and some other cattle. This is the 4th cycle of loans and she will use the money to rent a machine to level the field they are preparing for the next crop. She says that it's hard to obtain capital to do her business so she's thankful to ACE and Kiva's lenders who help her deal with this problem.

She hopes that her child will complete junior high school and be successful in the future so that her family's life will be improved. In the picture, Ly is standing first from the right.
