Linh is a 39 year-old, married woman with two children. Linh lives with her family in Ho Chi Minh City. For six years, she and her husband have operated a food stall where they sell meals to people in their community.
Linh would like a loan to purchase new furniture for her stall and to repair the motorcycle that she uses to transport foods between the local market and her stall.
She hopes this will enable her to better meet the needs of her customers and attract additional customers. She also hopes that through the loan, she will be able to increase her income and save money for any future difficulties her family may face.
