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

A loan helped to buy household items, noodles, fast food and candies for selling at her store.

Linh's story

Linh would like to take a further loan to buy more products such as candies, fast food, noodles and household items to sell from her stall. Her previous loan enabled her to increase her sales and earn a higher income to support her family. Linh hopes that another loan will assist her in increasing the size of her business, attracting new customers and increasing sales. She also hopes that through the loan she can increase her income and improve her family's living conditions.
