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

A loan helped to buy more sedge seeds to grow and later make mats to sell.

Lý's story

Mrs. Lý is 47 years old and has five children. Her big family lives in a small village in Nong Cong district.

She has worked in agriculture growing sedge trees to make mats, which is traditional job in her village.

Now, she is asking for a loan to buy more sedge seeds to grow so she can make and sell more mats. She would like to maintain this traditional job for the younger generation.

In the future, she hopes for her business to do well.
