A loan of $3,025 helped to purchase farming essentials such as fertilizers and fuels for farming machines.

Ya Ma Nay Chaung Village's story

The featured borrower, Myint, has six acres of crop farm in the Delta region of Myanmar. He is 53 years old, married, and supports a family of four (two children). He is a proud father because all of his children are independent and working by themselves. Farming runs in his blood but like many farmers in this area, savings are low before the harvest season.

The loan will help him purchase the necessary farming inputs such as fertilizers, seeds and petrol for farm equipment. These inputs are vital for his crop farming to increase yield. Myint is planning to use income generated from this loan to invest in duck farming as a secondary business. Some of the profits will be donated to the local monastery after the harvests.

The fund will help 15 members and is supervised by CBO leaders of the Ya Ma Nay Chaung Village. Pictured above (from left to right) are Win, Aung, Naing, Naing L and Myint.

The fund will help the group purchase farming essentials before harvest time. Ya Ma Nay Village mainly focuses on crop farming, as well as other seasonal plantation of betel, coconut and banana trees for additional income.
