During the ceremony, the beneficiaries listened to successful farmers of previous years.
Ms. Le Hong Hon (An Loi, Binh Tay, Ben Tre), a woman who received funding from the programme this year said: “My husband died years ago, so I have been raising my kid alone. During the last rainy season, our house was badly affected and I had to send our belongings to our parents’ to avoid damage. GREENFEED’s support came just at the right time when my family needed it the most. Thanks to the funding, now I’m able to have my own husbandry besides working at the Women’s Union to support other women in our locality.”
Ms. Hon with her relentless efforts to not only support her family to overcome the disadvantages but also encourage other women in the commune to join the programme for better lives.
