A loan of $850 helped making tofu and rice wine.


Trinh Thi's story

Mrs. Trịnh Thị T., 40 years old, has four school-age children. In 1996, Mrs. T. became a member of the TYM Fund and used a loan to invest in raising pigs. Today, besides raising animals, she also uses loans from the Fund to buy raw materials for producing tofu and brewing wine to sell. With a total monthly income of 4,500,000 VND (255 USD), the lives of Mrs. T. and her family are steadily improving and becoming more secure. In the next round of lending, she hopes to borrow 15,000,000 VND (850 USD) to buy soybeans for making tofu and rice for making rice wine in order to increase her family’s earnings from these enterprises.
