Trang, a 45 year-old married woman with two children, lives in Ho Chi Minh City. Her husband works as a carpenter, while Trang runs a food stall that sells a variety of food to people in the local community. She started this business three years ago.

Trang is requesting a loan to purchase more good quality food and ingredients to make better dishes to sell from her stall. She hopes that this will enable her to attract more customers to her stall. She also hopes her business will run smoothly and she can earn additional income to reinvest in her stall and save for emergencies.
