Long My district has many rivers, canals, and water areas which allows for raising ducks easily. Very poor households get loans from Anh Duong in order to raise 50 small ducks. After 5 months the ducks will produce eggs. Ducks are fed with snails and rice which the farmers get for free by searching in the field.
In one night a duck “ponder” can get up to 45 eggs. One egg is sold for 1000 – 2000 dong. It helps to get a higher income for these poor households.
