Vo Thi's story

Mrs. Võ Thị Cậy, 54 years old, has three grown children. Mrs. Cậy has participated in the TYM Fund since 2005. Before she joined the Fund, her family depended upon fishing for their income. Since joining the Fund, she has used her loans to invest in a business selling bamboo. This business is now doing rather well and earns the family an income of 3,000,000 VND (172 USD) per month. In the next round of lending, she hopes to borrow 20,000,000 VND (1150 USD) to buy more bamboo, which they can sell to residents of the local community. This will enable Mrs. Cậy and her family to increase their income.
