Nhung T. D. is 51 years old. She lives in Phu Man village, Cho Town, Yen Phong, Bac Ninh. She has three children. The first son has a job and has income. She not only grows rice, but also raises pigs to scratch out a living. In 2008, she joined SEDA's activities to gain access to financial resources. Her loans, which were used largely to buy food for chickens, have always been repaid punctually. In the next round, she would like to borrow 7.840.000 VND to invest in her livestock. Hopefully, that plan will turn a profit so that her family can afford to buy more household appliances.
