A loan of $2,100 helped a member to buy piglets.

Na Tau 6 Group's story

Thin, 31, is a Thai woman who is married and has two children, one in grade 6 and the other in grade 9. She and her family live in a small, traditional Thai house and mostly earn a living through agricultural activities such as cultivating rice, planting vegetables, and breeding chickens and fish. However, because of a lack of land, it is hard for Thin to expand her farming, so she has opened a grocery store and her husband works extra for a local construction employer.

In spite of their constant efforts, their income is only enough to cover their family's basic living expenses and tuition fees for their children. Thin cannot afford to buy new furniture for her house or books or toys for her children. This has motivated her to carry out a pig-raising project and, to do that, she has taken out a loan from Anh Chi Em Program to buy piglets. She said that she joined in the Program's services not only because of the loan, but also due to the useful training she would receive, which she heard about through the introduction from Anh Chi Em staff. This is Thin's first loan in the Program and she hopes that with this project, she can make her family richer and can progressively improve their living standards.
