Thuận's story

Mrs. Thuận is 33 years old and has two children. She lives in a small village of Nga Son district, near the sea. For more than 4 years, she has sold dried food and general goods to make a living.

Every day, she gets up early to prepare the goods to sell in other villages. However, she is lacking capital to invest in her store. She is asking for a loan to buy more cake, sweets, sugar, milk, and beverages to sell.

In the future, she hopes for her business to do well enough that she has enough money to send her kids to college.
