Le Thi's story

Mrs. Gái has participated in the TYM Fund since 2006. She has a simple family which is why the family's income mainly comes from rearing livestock and farming. Before joining the Fund, the family focused their efforts on raising pigs for the lack of capital. After having received a loan, she assertively invested in cattle rearing.

Today, the family is raising one cow to sell for its meat and another cow for breeding. The project of raising cattle has helped to gradually improve the family income. Outside of the time he puts in to help his wife tend to the livestock, Mrs. Gái's husband also works as a hired motorbike driver to increase the family income.

Mrs. Gái has always dreamt of having a more steady income to put money towards her two children's education and give her family a better life. She wishes to borrow 9,000,000 VND to purchase materials and supplies for her livestock rearing business.
