08-Đông Hải Group's story

Group 08 has five members. They live in Ái Sơn village number 1, Đông Hải commune, a poor village in Thanh Hoá province. Mrs. Lê Thị N., 49 years old, is the group leader. Each day, in addition to working in the rice fields, she spends part of her day going to the market to buy fruit, which she then sells door to door in order to earn some more income. Her husband, Trần Văn Năm, is a rice farmer. They have two children, an older daughter who has already married and a younger son who has not yet left home. Mrs. N. hopes to borrow 3,079,800 VND (~180USD) to invest expanding her fruit sales. The other members of the group are requesting loans of the same amount. Mrs. N. Thị Hương will use her loan to buy fruit which she can resell. Mrs. N. Thị Huệ will use her loan to buy breeding hens. Mrs. N. Thị Kha will use her loan to buy breeding hens. Mrs. N. Thị Sen will use her loan to invest in a small grocery shop she runs from her home.
