A loan helped to buy acacia seedlings and pay for labor costs.

Luyến's story

Mr. Luyên is a farmer, 26 years old and married. He is an ethnic minority and lives in Nhu Thanh district, a mountainous region of Thanh Hoa province.

He makes a living by raising chicks, ducks, and pigs. His family is a low-income household in the village; moreover, this job is unstable. Now, he plans to grow industrial trees for timber. He is asking for a loan to buy acacia seedlings and pay for labor costs.

He feels grateful for this loan and hopes for his business to do well in the future.
