Dung's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase more housewares and dried food to resell.

Dung's story

Ms Dung, a widow, is 45 years old and has two children. Her family lives in a small village of Trieu Son district, a rural region.

Since her husband died, she has overcome the difficulties of life to raise kids and send them to school.

She earns a living by selling dried food and general things. In addition, she grows rice and raises poultry. The income is enough to cover the living expenses.

Now, she is asking for a loan to invest in her business by purchasing more housewares and dried food to resell. She plans to diversify the products to make more income.

In the future, she hopes for her family to be healthy and for her business to do well.
