Nghi Phong Commune
The commune received approximately $10,000 Cdn from the program. Each household received approximately $100 Cdn to be used for animal husbandry. During our visit, we had the chance to visit a couple of households that are being helped by the program. In one of the households that we saw, the woman invested her loan into purchasing a cow. She seemed very happy with the program, and intends to sell the cow for a profit at a later time. In the second household that we saw, the family bought a pig.
The visit to the commune was my first view of Vietnam outside of the cities. I was amazed, or perhaps shocked, by how different people live here. It is difficult to judge a standard of living when the people are smiling, so cheerful, and seem happy about their lives.
