A loan of $525 helped bicycle repair shop.

Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyễn Thị Hương, 35 years old, has participated in the TYM Fund since 2006. In the past, she has used most of her loans from the Fund to raise animals, and today this is one of the main sources of income for her family. Besides raising animals, the family earns money from her husband’s bicycle repair shop (an average of about 80,000 VND (5 USD) per day). In the next round of lending, she hopes to borrow 9,000,000 VND (525 USD) to buy spare bicycle parts and to invest in expanding the repair shop.
