Thach's story

Thach is a 54-year-old married woman. She lives with three children and husband in Ho Chi Minh City. Her husband earns money by repairing scooters and driving for hire. For two years, Thach has helped her husband to repair scooters and also run a general store selling milk, beverages, stationery, and confections.

Thach intends to use her loan to buy many kinds of products to sell from her store such as eggs, sugar, sanitation items. She hopes this will enable her to better meet the needs of her customers and attract additional customers.

She also hopes that through her loan she will be able to increase her income and save money for any future difficulties facing her family.
