Ms. Sáu has a retail business selling dry food. She is requesting a loan to purchase candy and biscuits to resell. Sáu has been involved in this business for more than 10 years. The main hardship that she faces in her business is the lack of capital.

In 2011, Sáu joined Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women to improve her business. She has successfully repaid 2 loans from Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women. With her business profit, Sáu hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, for her business to do well, and to build a new house.
