A loan of $525 helped raising chickens.


Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyễn Thị Mạnh, 48 years old, has three grown children. In 2008 she used a loan from the TYM Fund to invest in raising ducks and fish. She and her family now have 700 ducks and 5 sào (1 sào = 360 square meters) of fish ponds, from which they earn an income of 5,000,000 VND (292 USD) per month. In the next round of lending, she hopes to borrow 9,000,000 VND (525 USD) to buy 100 chickens and animal feed.
