Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyễn Thị Tân, 49 years old, lives with her retired husband and their two children who attend school. She has participated in the TYM Fund since 2005, borrowing money to invest in raising animals and to run a small grocery shop. These enterprises are now the main sources of income for her family. In the next lending cycle, she hopes to borrow 15,000,000 VND (900 USD) to buy feed for her animals and to invest in her family’s grocery shop.
