A loan of $1,150 helped business.


Nguyen Thi's story

In 1997, Ms. H. became a member of this organization and was able to obtain her first loan of $700.00usd. She used this money to invest in buying duck eggs, selling them at the local market and in bulk to restaurants. The profit made daily was just enough to cover her family expenses. The following years, she has been obtaining larger loans to increase the volume of her business. In 2000, she was able to use the money she made to purchase a piece of land to build ducks houses for nesting and laying eggs. Her inventory was enough to sell to the local market, eateries and restaurants. After 10 plus years of borrowing along with smart investment, she has seen a success and growth with her business. Presently, she has 2 egg warmers that produces 40.000 duck eggs a week, which she use to cater to eateries, restaurants and to the locals in her village. This next loan, she is requesting 19.000.000 in which she plans to use for her business. Her average income is 8.000.000d/month.
