A loan of $550 helped business.


Lan's story

Ms. Doung Thi Lan is 46 yrs old. Before joining the fund, she sold scraps while her husband worked as a moulder; the family's income was not stable and they had a difficult life. In 2006, she joined the fund and borrowed money to open a metal casting factory at her home. Now her business has 3 employees and brings in 180 USD per month. For this next loan, she wishes to borrow 550 USD to purchase raw materials for her family's business.
