Noong Luong 12 Group's story

Mrs. Thom, 27, is a Thai lady who has worked at farming with lots of experience. She currently lives in a small Thai traditional house with other seven members in her family, including her parents-in-law, her two brothers-in-law and her husband along with her two children. Her son is at grade 2 and attends school fully while her daughter is 2 years old and looked after by her parents-in-law when she works on the rice field.

Thom and her husband take the main responsibility in providing for the family. They mostly work at agriculture production such as raising chickens, pigs, fish and growing rice, and fruit. Besides, her husband works extra for local construction employer to better cover living expenses for the family.

This is the third loan that Thom has had in Anh Chi Em Program. She said that she was really interested in the loan and training services of the Program. In the previous loan from Anh Chi Em, she bought fish food and thanks to the training techniques in raising fish she received, she produced a high yield and received a good profit. This time she will continue using the loan to buy fish food and expand her fish farming.

She hopes this business plan will improve significantly her family income so that she can afford to buy her children new toys and books, as well as purchase some new furniture for her house.

In the picture, Thom stands first from the right on the first line, with a very pretty smile on her face.
