05.05.21 Điện Biên Group's story

Mrs. Điệp, age 41, operates a food-stall restaurant, selling sweet rice. She has been engaged in this business for five years. She is requesting a loan to purchase ingredients for the food she prepares and sells. Điệp is the group leader of the 05.05.21 Điện Biên solidarity group, which consists of six members. She lives and works in Thanh Hoa city, an urban area in Thanh Hoa province, with her husband and their two children.

The main hardship that Điệp faces in her business is lack of capital. In 2009, Mrs. Điệp joined Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women in order to improve her business. She has successfully repaid two loans from Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women.

With her business profit, Điệp hopes to secure her children's educations, to ensure that her family is healthy and happy, and to help her business thrive.
