Hong, 47, is married and has been supporting her family by operating a general store in front of her house for the past 12 years. Hong lives with her two sons and husband in Ho Chi Minh City.

Hong sells many kinds of products in her general store such as candies, snack foods, detergents, soaps, and beverages. Hong requires a loan to buy a range of different products in bulk for her general store. This will allow her to restock her store at a lower price and increase the range of products that she offers to customers. She hopes that this will attract additional customers and increase the income of her business.

She hopes that through the loan, she will be able to generate sufficient additional income to further expand her business, improve her family’s living conditions and save money for her sons’ education fees.
