Mai
Mai is a 60-year-old widow with two children. She lives with them in Ho Chi Minh City.

Over the past 30 years, Mai has taken care of her children through her business selling pork in a small local market.

The business' profit covers all of her family expenses and there is very little left over. She would like to have a loan to invest in and expand her current business, which she will use to purchase larger quantities of meat for resale. She hopes that she will be able to earn a higher income and set aside part of her earnings to cover any family emergencies.
