A loan helped to buy more pineapple seedlings, fertilizer.

Ly's story

Mrs. Ly, a farmer, is 26 years old. She and her husband work hard to raise three kids and take care of their parents who are old and cannot work for income. They live in a small village in the Ha Trung district, a moutainous region.

She has worked in agriculture, planting fruits trees, for 6 years.

Her family's income is from this farm. This year, because of the heavy rains and strong winds, her pineapple farm was damaged. Now, she is asking for a loan to reinvest in her farm. She plans to buy more pineapple seedlings and fertilizer.

Her dream is to be successful in life and to help other people.
