Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyễn Thị Thảo is 56 years old and lives with one of her children in Hùng Vương ward, in the town Phúc Yên, Vĩnh Phúc province. Unfortunately, her husband passed away at an early age. Mrs. Thảo has participated in the TYM Fund since 2004. Currently she works as a seamstress from her home. This is the main source of income for her family, earning her about 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 cloth to make clothes which she can sell to people in her community.
