Tran Thi's story

Mrs. Tran Thi A. is 46 years old. Her family has two grown children. Mrs. Tran joined TYM Fund in 1997. In the beginning, she borrowed funds to invest in livestock raising and farming. In 2003, her family has shifted from farming to growing decorative and ornamental plants. Currently, this business provides the main source of income for her family. To increase her family income, her husband works as a motorbike cabbie in his spare time (a motorbike cabbie takes passengers on a motorbike for fares). She would like to borrow 10,000,000 VND to invest in more plants to grow.
