Noong Luong 11 Group's story

Hoa, 31, is a Lao lady who lives in a small house far from the center of the town with her husband and her two children. Her son is in sixth grade and her daughter is five years old. She and her husband have worked so hard to cover living expenses as well as paid fully tuition fee for the kids, especially after they moved out of their parents' house and started an independent life. Indeed, Hoa mainly works on the field with agricultural activities, such as cultivating rice, raising pigs, chickens, and fish, and planting vegetables for her family's use, while her husband works for a local construction employer. Hoa said that she was very thankful to Anh Chi Em Program for providing her loans and guiding her in some farming techniques, which has been extremely useful as she lacked both capital and the necessary knowledge of agriculture. For that reason, after being successful with the first loan from Anh Chi Em by investing in pigs, she continues with the second loan, and this time she will use the loan to buy small fish and expand her business with fish. She hopes to gain much profit from this project after taking out the loan and training support from Anh Chi Em, so that she could afford to buy some new furniture for the house and offer a sufficient life for her children. In the picture, Hoa stands first from the right.
