Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyễn Thị Phấn, 41 years old, lives in Thanh Hóa province. She has three young children who attend school. Her husband earns 3,000,000 VND (172 USD) per month as a truck driver. She joined the TYM Fund in 2005 and used her loan mainly to operate a rice-husking machine that earned her about 500,000 VND (29 USD) per month, and also to raise pigs. In the next round of lending, she hopes to borrow 10,000,000 VND (575 USD) to invest in the family business raising animals.
