A loan of $900 helped invest in her grocery.


Binh's story

Ms Binh is 53 years old, and has been a member of TYM fund since 1998. She joined the fund with the condition of doing business near the market at the center of the district. Therefore, she borrowed a loan to invest in a grocery store. Currently, in addition to the monthly income from her store, her family has additional source of income from her husband's job and assistance from her children who are also working, and thus their economic situation improves steadily. With average income of 390 USD per month, and after repaying the loans and taking care of their needs, her family is still abL. to save and buy other things to attend to their daily lives. For this loan, she wishes to borrow 900 USD to purchase additional household appliances and utensils for her store to meet the demand of the customers for the upcoming Tet Holiday.
