Chương's story

Ms Chương is 50 years old. She is a single parent with one son. Now, he is independent. Her family lives in a small village in Quang Xuong district, near the sea.

She makes a living by selling clothes in the local market. She would like to invest in her business but is lacking capital. Now, she is asking for a loan to buy more clothes to resell.

With this loan, Chương hopes for her business to do well and she hopes for her son to maintain a good job.
