Nguyen Thi's story

C. Nguyễn is a 33 year-old female living in the town of Nghệ An. She is married and has three young children. To make a living, C. owns and operates a business venture in the agriculture sector raising crops. While not the only means of generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from planting and harvesting a variety of vegetables for sale. C. has been engaged in this business for more than four years and earns approximately 2500000 VND a month from these activities.

In 2004, C. joined TYM Fund (a Kiva partner) to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. C. has successfully repaid a previous loan from TYM Fund. This previous loan was used to invest in expanding the business.

C. is now requesting a new loan of 2000000 VND, which will be used to pay for services to increase crop yield. The loan will be the fifth loan taken out by the borrower from TYM Fund. C. plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
