Dung lives in a small house in Ho Chi Minh City with her two daughters and her husband.
They earn money by cleaning vehicles and selling spare parts. With the minimal capital that they have, they sometimes cannot provide the parts required by their customers. She would like to get a loan to buy a larger stock of spare parts to meet their customers' needs.
She also hopes her business will ensure that her family members, and especially her daughters, will have a better education and a better future.
