Vy H., 39, has been selling fresh fishes to her neighbors in her village for years. She sells the fish that she gets from her husband's fishing and that she buys from the wholesale suppliers as well. Beside her business, she is also a good homemaker who cooks delicious food and cares for her four children, who are single and still live in the family home. To help feed the family a little more, one of her sons is a worker for a garment industry, whilst her husband is a local fisherman. Because her husband's fishing is a profitable investment for the family, Vy H. is looking for a loan in order to buy more tools for her husband's fishing business.
