Truc, age 27, operates an Internet shop with her husband. They have been engaged in this business, located in front of their house in Ho Chi Minh City, since 2008. The business is able to generate sufficient income to cover all their family's expenses, as well as to cover the study fees for the IT courses that they are currently enrolled in. They have one daughter.
Truc would like to request a loan to improve her business by buying more computers and appliances, and to make repairs to her shop so as to attract more customers. She is confident that these additions will help her to run her business smoothly, earn a higher income, and save money for her daughter's education.
