A loan helped to buy more cattle and poultry meat to sell.

Tám's story

Mr Tám is 38 years old, married and father of two children. He lives in Tinh Gia district, near the sea.

For more than 5 years, he has operated a food stall, selling meat and vegetables.

In 2017, Tám joined Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution to improve his business. Tám has successfully repaid 2 loans. Tám is a reputable person in the community.

Now, he lacks capital to invest in his business and he is asking for a loan to buy more cattle and poultry meat to sell.

In the future, Tám hopes for his family to be healthy and happy, for his business to do well, and to make enough money to provide for his kids.
