Mai's Group's story

Mai is 51 years old and lives with four children. She is divorced. For the past 30 years Mai has been running a business of collecting, buying and selling used materials to earn an income to support her family. Mai is the leader of an eight-member loan group whose members live in Ho Chi Minh City. In the picture, she is in the fifth from left, wearing a grey jacket. Each of the other group members is requesting a loan to fund income-generating activities. Mai is requesting a loan to purchase a greater quantity of used materials to clean, recycle and sell to large waste-recycling facilities. She hopes that through her loan she will be able to increase her income and save money for any future difficulties facing her family.
