Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. G. Thi Nguyen, 51 years old, joined the Fund in 2003. She has two children who are currently going to school. Since joining the Fund, the family has invested in a service which rents out audio equipment, tableware, and other equipment for use ceremonies and celebrations in the local town. The family's business is expanding quickly; for each event, her family collects 400,000 VND to 500,000 VND. Besides the family's main business, she and her husband also take advantage of their extra time to do some extra trading business with a daily income of 50,000 VND. In this round of funding, the family is borrowing 19,000,000 VND to buy more equipment to rent. Their average income is 6,000,000 VND/month.
