A loan of $550 helped buy net to fish.


Thi Nhung's story

Mrs. Nhung has joined the TYM Fund since 2007. Currently, her family's income comes mainly from fishing. Everyday, she and her husband fish and sell to the fish retailers in the village, earning 100,000 to 150,000VND (about 6USD to 9USD) each day. Her family lives near Day river so fishing is very convenient. She has 2 children. They are all grown up with stable works and incomes, so the income from fishing is not only enough for daily expenses but also enough for them to save and invest in further business. This time, she would like to borrow 9,000,000VND (550USD) to purchase new net for fishing.
