Mrs Hương is 40 years old and married with two children. Her family lives in Bim Son, a semi-urban town.

Now, Mrs Huong's family's main income is from the farm, where she raises poultry and livestock. Her family is a low-income household in the village; moreover, this job is unstable.

Mrs Huong is aware of the importance of education, so she and husband work hard to send their kids to school. One of her kids is in college and one is in primary school. Mrs Huong hopes for her kids to have a bright future.

Mrs Huong is asking for a loan to buy books and pay tuition for her kids.
