Vu Thi's story

T. Vũ is a 50 year-old female living in the town of T. Hoá. She is married and has three adult children. To make a living, T. owns and operates a business venture in the agriculture sector raising livestock. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from raising pigs for sale. T. has been engaged in this business for more than 30 years and earns approximately 2500000 VND a month from these activities.

In 2007, T. 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. T. has successfully repaid a previous loan from TYM Fund. This previous loan was used to purchase breeding livestock.

T. is now requesting a new loan of 9000000 VND, which will be used to build shelter for her livestock. The loan will be the second loan taken out by the borrower from TYM Fund. T. plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
