Gấm's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy books and pay tuition for her children.

Gấm's story

Mrs. Gấm is 41 years old and the mom of two children, who are school age. Her family lives in Cam Thuy, a mountainous region of Thanh Hoa province, far from the city center.

She is a farmer, farming food and raising chickens and cattle. Her husband is a builder in the village. Their income is unstable and low.

They work hard to make enough money to raise their kids and send them to school. Now, she is asking for a loan to buy books and pay tuition for her children.

She hopes that her children will go to college and have a bright life.
