Oanh is 44 years old and married. She and her husband have been running an aluminium and glass shop in front of her door for 10 years. They started this business to cover their family's expenses and raise their children. They live in Ho Chi Minh City.
Oanh is requesting a loan to expand her business by buying materials such as aluminium frames and glass to make cupboards and shop-windows to sell, allowing her to increase sales.
She hopes that through the loan she will be able to expand her business activities and have money to reinvest in her business in the future.
