NLD women’s organisation increases work projects

Chiang Mai (Mizzima) – Two members were added to the National League for Democracy (NLD) Rangoon Division Women Affairs Works Implementation Committee on Tuesday, expanding from three to five members to meet an increased work load, officials said.

The new committee members are Than Than Sew (Baan) and Aye Mi (Thicket), who join Mint Seen, Tin May and May Win Mint on the committee.

‘Our activities have gained momentum. So we’re reinforcing our committee for better performance and efficiency’, committee leader May Win Mint told Misaim.

The NLD Rangoon Division women’s committee is currently lending small microfinance loans of 20,000 kyat (US$ 23) each to 50 roadside vendors from the Barbie Market in Tame Township.

‘We  started this project at the market last month. If it is successful, we’ll expand the loans without interest in other townships’, said May Win Mint.

In other NLD news, office administration team member Win Hein said that Sue Kyiv has prohibited NLD members from working with the ‘Sun’ free funeral service association, which opened last month in Thingangyun Township. 

May Win Myint said the service conflicted with other NLD projects.
