Nguyet's story

Nguyet is 44 years old and is married with three children, two sons and one daughter. Her husband is a bricklayer. She lives with her family in Ho Chi Minh City.

Nguyet has been running a general store in front of her house for two years. She started this business to cover her expenses and to generate income to raise her children.

Nguyet is requesting a loan to expand her business by buying more household items and many kinds of soft drinks to stock her store. She hopes that this will enable her to attract more customers and that she will be able to increase the turnover of her business. She hopes that through the loan she will be able to expand her business activities, and have money to reinvest in her business in the future.
