A loan of $625 helped services.


Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyen Thi V., aged 32, became a member of TYM Fund in 1999. Her family’s main source of income is from farming. But besides farming, they also pack bricks to sell. In the first round of loan, Mrs. V. asked for only 1.000.000 VND to buy and sell sands. But after that, Mrs. V. used the loans to buy and sell bricks. As the demand for building materials is enormous these days, Mrs. V.’s business has been very profitable. They make about 4.000.000 VND per month. In the next round of loan, Mrs. V. would like to borrow 10.000.000 VND ($625) to purchase materials to make bricks. Her family’s monthly income is 6.000.000 VND.
