After receiving a scholarship to continue these studies, Mansa just obtained her baccalaureate this month and she has already obtained a job in just 6 days. A big thank you to Alain and Mekong plus who support her.
Oanh received a microcredit and obtained a loan to fertilize her vegetable garden and repaid the very high interest rate loan from the unscrupulous lender she had dealt with (paid debt of VND 10 million - +/- 400 €). The family income has improved thanks to the sale of vegetables (about $1/person/day) and there is no longer a worry about the high monthly interest payment. Her two sons at school were awarded scholarships in the 2021-2022 school year to cover their tuition, textbooks and notebooks.
Vanndet is now 15 years old and in grade 9. He is a good student who was 3rd in his class in August 2022. He obtained support from his godmother, for a year, to pay internet fees for his online studies and take new courses. The sponsorship also allowed his mother to obtain a loan to buy a smartphone for him. So he is happy with these supports and he really likes to study on his own at home. In addition to this, Vanndet has created a group of friends and with the teacher to learn online, share knowledge and exercises through social media.
