Tran Thi's story

Mrs. Tran Thi T. is 51 years old. Before joining the TYM Fund, her family's economic situation was very difficult as her husband had died and she had two small children. The main source of income was from farming and livestock raising. To date, after 10 years of participation in the Fund, she proactively borrowed money to expand the farming and livestock raising business and learn to be a tailor. Currently, apart from raising livestock, she and her daughter make gloves and clothes for garment workshops. The family's income is at VND4,500,000 per month.

In this loan cycle, she wishes to borrow VND15,000,000 to buy sewing machine and textiles to make clothes.
