Phung's Group's story

Nga is 62 years old and lives with her son and her husband. For the past 24 years Nga has been running a general store from the front of her house to earn an income to support her family. She is the group leader of a seven-member loan group that lives in Ho Chi Minh City. In the picture, she is wearing a white blouse.

Each of the other group members are requesting loans to fund income-generating activities. Nga is requesting a loan to purchase a better quality and greater variety of products such as food and beverages to restock her store. She hopes this will enable her to better meet the needs of her customers and attract additional ones. She also hopes that through her loan, she will be able to increase her income and save money for any future difficulties facing her family.
