Tam's story

Ms. N. Thi Tam is 46 yrs old, and joined TYM fund in 1999. Since joining the fund, she has used the loans to invest in raising animals to improve her family's income. After 13 yrs of raising animals in a small setting, she is now the owner of a decent-size animal farm in Phuc Uyen District in the town of Vinh Phuc. With average monthly income of 345 USD, her business is doing quite well and her family's economic situation is improving every day. For her next loan, she wishes to borrow 1150 USD to purchase additional pigs and feed for the animals.
