Khuong, 42, is the father of two daughters. Together with his wife and children, Khuong lives in a small house in Ho Chi Minh City. He and his wife earn income from selling fruit from their streetside stall. He began this business 15 years ago.
Every morning they buy common seasonal fruit such as plums, pineapples, watermelons, cherries, and bananas to sell in their stall. Khuong would like a loan to buy a greater variety and higher quality of fruit so that he can attract more customers.
He hopes that, through the loan, he will be able to increase his income and improve his family's living conditions.
