A loan of $625 helped services.

Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyen Thi L., aged 35, became a member of TYM Fund in 2000. Her husband is currently working in the States under one labor export program. Mrs. L. only borrowed 2.000.000 VND in the first round of loan to invest in tailoring. As Mrs. L. is a skilled tailor, her shop is very popular in her area. Realizing that she still had time to do something else besides tailoring, Mrs. L. started using the loans from TYM Fund to open a small shop selling a variety of necessities at home in 2003. This has helped her family make about 3.000.000 VND per month. Her husband sends money back home every month to help the whole family. In the next round of loan, Mrs. L. would like to borrow 10.000.000 VND ($625) to purchase more goods for her shop. Her family’s monthly income is 5.000.000 VND.
