A loan of $750 helped to repair and buy stock for her general store.


Hoa's story

Hoa is 48 years old and has two children. Her husband is deceased. Hoa supports her children through the income she earns from her general store that occupies the front of her house. Her store sells a variety of goods such as confectionery, toys for kids and everyday necessities. Hoa and her family live in Ho Chi Minh City.

Hoa intends to take a loan to buy a larger variety of different everyday goods such as confectionery and snack foods to stock her general store and better meet her customers' needs. She also would like to use a portion of the loan to repair her store.

Hoa hopes her business runs smoothly and will help her to improve her living conditions.
