Nguyen Thi
Mrs. Nguyen Thi N. is 44 years old and has four children, two of whom are working adults. In 2003, she joined TYM and borrowed funds to buy materials for her mat-making business, a traditional job in her area. With her experience and professional skill, all of the products she makes sell well, so her family's income increases regularly.

In addition to this business, her family farms and raises animals. With an income of about $180 per month and some financial assistance from her two grown children, her family's living quality has improved significantly.

Nguyen is now requesting a loan of $500 to buy rushes to weave more mats.
