Young man finds success with cricket business

In Uncategorized on October 14, 2010 at 2:32 pm

A poor young man, who had to leave university due to financial burden, has successfully set up a cricket-raising career on a farm he named Thien An, which attracts visitors and provides crickets for restaurants in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.

Nguyen Quang Huy, 28, followed his family to Lam Dong Province from the northern province of Bac Giang in 2001. The new life in the highlands was not easy, as Huy had to leave university to assist his family.

The thought of raising crickets came to Huy after he visited a cricket farm in Cu Chi District, Ho Chi Minh City. He then began studying the process of breeding crickets and came to Cu Chi to learn more.

After becoming familiar with the process, Huy wrote a proposal on cricket-raising development and asked Lam Ha District authorities to finance it. The district Bank for Social Policies finally lent him VND150 million (US$8,000) to open a cricket farm.

With the initial capital, Huy built a 300 square meter farm with over 200 cricket basins in Nam Ban Commune, 50 kilometers from Dalat City.

Now established for more than a year, the farm obtains over 200 trays of cricket eggs a month, each tray bringing him VND50,000 and 25 kilograms of crickets, which he sells to restaurants in Dalat City.

After calculating costs, the 200 cricket basins yield him over VND70 million (US$3,700) in net profit, Huy said.

The Thien An cricket farm has been chosen as a tourist destination by Dalat City travel companies. The farm receives from five to seven delegations of visitors each day, who come to learn about the phases of breeding crickets and to enjoy cricket-based foods such as cricket fired with citronella and chili and fried power-dip crickets.

Huy’s foremost specialty is young crickets. The farm usually freezes these crickets, which sell for 25 percent more than what mature crickets fetch.

Tran Quang Khai’s mother believed that her father, a retired English teacher, has triggered Khai’s aptitude for English as he usually sang English songs while bathing the boy since the boy was a baby.

Since being at grade 2, Khai was enrolled for an English class at Victory foreign language center of Tra Vinh University, where he became the youngest student.

Up to now, Khai has obtained many international certificates like Cambridge Young Learners English Test-STARTERS, MOVERS and FLYERS and KET Certificate of the Cambridge University in England.

Recalling the path of becoming an amateur interpreter, Khai told during the last Tet holidays, he saw an American man asking to buy a bicycle at a park. However, no one understood what he said.

Thus, Khai guided the man to buy the bicycle. The boy then had lunch with the man and introduced him landscapes in Tra Vinh.

Thenceforward, whenever meeting foreigners, Khai actively gets acquaintance with them to practice English.

Khai has interpreted for hundreds of visitors from the US, Canada, French and Italia. He said he just wanted to help foreign visitors and to improve English.

Besides English, Khai is also good at other subjects, especially mathematics, literature and music with beautiful voice and polish piano performance.

Mathematic talent development is a long process, which must be conducted from primary schools and require continual training and nurture at higher grades, said Dr. Tran Nam Dung, lecturer from the HCMC University of Natural Sciences when opening the chat.

To know if having aptitude for mathematics, students should participate in mathematical competitions, do exams in reference books, and contact with experienced teachers for help, according to Dr. Nguyen Thanh Hung, vice principle of the High School for the Gifted.

The city’s education always pays attention to discover and nurture gifted students since primary grade. However, the training work still lacks of inheritance among schools, said Nguyen Hoai Chuong, deputy director of the Education and Training Department.

To train and encourage gifted students, HCMC schools usually gather them in special classes instructed by best teachers, exempt them from tuition fees and give scholarships.

The Government has built an Institute of Mathematics, costing thousands of billions of dong, which is expected to muster leading mathematicians in the world.

However, the number of Vietnamese mathematicians with research work of international stature is still limited, Mr. Chuong said. He hoped that the Government in future will have more effective policies to develop Vietnam’s mathematics.

Teacher Tran Duc Huyen from Le Hong Phong High School shared that right after discovering mathematics talents, his school granted them scholarships to study until they complete university.

The school also organizes scientific clubs to promote students’ passion to study and do scientific researches.
