Well, as you probably read in the final report that I typed up, the
mushroom picking has occured and PeeWaan and her family are well on their
way in the mushroom business.
For her first harvest, Pee Waan packaged over 100 bags of mushrooms that
will be sold at 65 baht per bag (making her first earnings over 6500 baht).
That's an incredible increase to her current salary of just about 3000
baht per month. With her new found income, she has already made an initial
payment on the loan, started construction on her new home for her, her
daughter and her new son-in-law; son-in-law because Pee Waan's daughter,
Omichad, was recently married (see attached photo). It was a wonderful
ceremony and, as you can imagine, there was much to celebrate on this
I am so thankful to have been apart of Pee Waan's life and to have been
a small part of helping her improve it. She's been a diligent worker and
I know that she will only continue to be a strong and active member in
Thank you so much to Friends of Thailand for helping Pee Waan and her
family. Money well spent indeed.
