Mrs. Dang Thi Thu Thuy is a widow living with 2 school-aged children. Her husband died of stomach cancer when their youngest daughter’s just 6 months old. The 3 people are staying in an old house building for a long time. She is the breadwinner with the family income from selling mimni-pancake in the morning and “banh canh” (thick noodles soup) in the afternoon.
But her health is not good because she is suffering from blood pressure and cerebral ischemic diseases, that prevents from stable and regular business and leads to low income with 1.10 $ per person per day. It is insufficient to cover their living expenses and the education costs for both children. She wants to get a loan to have more capital to purchase materials for her business.
