A loan of $2,700 helped a member to buy piglets.

Na Tau 5 Group's story

Thuong is a 24-year-old married woman with a 7- year-old child who attends primary school. She lives with her husband and her child in a Thai traditional house of a small remote village.

They rely on agricultural production for a living and cultivate rice and canna and breed pigs. Despite their effort, the income was not enough to cover their living expense and tuition fee. Her husband works extra for local construction employers.

In order to have more earnings, Thuong intended to expand her business but she had difficulty due to lack of capital. At the same time, she was introduced to Anh Chi Em Program about its activities, which contained financial and non-financial support. She has been very interested in taking part in those. This is her first loan in the Program and she will use the loan to buy piglets.

Thuong believes that, together with the training on agriculture techniques, she could enhance productivity and the quality of her agriculture products. This would improve considerably her family's income. When it succeeds, she will buy some new furniture for the house and new toys for her child.
