Thuy's story

Ms. L. Thi Thuy is 36 years old. She lives with her husband and 2 small children in Kim Dong District in the town of Hung Yen. Ms. Thuy joined TYM fund 11 years ago. Prior to joining the fund, Ms. Thuy had a small grocery store. After being able to borrow money from the fund, she invested in a clothing shop. Presently she is the owner of a clothing store that carries many different styles in Kim Dong District with average monthly income of 120 USD. In addition, her husband also makes money giving rides on his motorcycle, so her family's economic situation is very stable. For her next loan, she wishes to borrow 900 USD to invest in her clothing shop.
