Tuoi Thi's story

Mrs. Tuoi Thi P. is a 38 years old woman. Her family makes their living on tofu. Before, they did not have enough money, so every day, the couple could only make 5 kilogram of tofu to sell, making from 400,000 to 600,000 Vietnamese Dong per month. After joining the TYM fund, they started borrowing money and tried to expand the production, producing from 10 to 15 kilograms of tofu every day and raising from 10 to 20 pigs. Their income now reaches about 2,000,000 Vietnamese Dong per month. Mrs. P. plans to make the next loan of 9,000,000 Vietnamese Dong to buy 800 kilograms of tofu supply.
