Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyễn Thị Biên is 48 years old and has three grown children. She has been a member of the TYM Fund since 2005. Currently, her husband Liên works as a fisherman, while she works selling fish. She earns 2,500,000 VND (144 USD) per month from her fish sales, and together with her husband’s earnings, this has enabled the family to enjoy greater financial security and a higher standard of living. In the next round of lending, she hopes to borrow 20,000,000 VND (1150 USD) to invest in her business selling fish.
