A loan of $475 helped to buy food for her pigs and chickens.


Tam's story

Tam is 47 years old and a hardworking woman. She has two children who are both carpenters. Her husband drives a truck to earn a living. His income is about 5,000,000 VND. For the past twenty years Tam has worked as a farmer. She not only raises pigs and chickens but makes wine to sell as well. She earns about 6,000,000 VND per month, meaning together her family’s total earnings are about 11,000,000 VND per month.

The challenges Tam faces are not only a lack of money but also the knowledge needed to raise healthy pigs and chickens. Her dream is for successful futures for her children, so if she receives this SEDA loan, it will be one step toward realizing her dream.

Tam has participated in SEDA's credit program since 2010. In her last loan cycle she borrowed 8,736,000 VND and repaid the loan on time. In this new loan cycle she would like to borrow 9,632,000 VND to buy food for her pigs and chickens. She will be able to make more money and save for her children’s futures.
