43percent Upward mobility in life is often determined by access to capital. A little capital can help a family purchase goods to open up a shop, enable a farmer to acquire an ox to till the land, or support an aspiring entrepreneur to develop new ideas and solve a village’s recurrent problems. Financial capital is instrumental in bringing a community out of poverty and into prosperity. But with 43% of Vietnam currently surviving on less than $2 a day, it can be difficult for many Vietnamese to manage day-to-day living expenses, much less save up money to expand their current livelihood or jump start a new business.


Microfinance Meeting - 2


Microloans have become an increasingly popular and effective way of addressing Vietnam’s poverty issue.  With small loans ranging from $50 to $400, VNHELP’s microloan recipients gain much needed seed money to begin a new business or scale an existing enterprise. Microloans have already been a positive force for change for millions around the world and will likely continue to be an important tool in elevating the status of Vietnam’s poor in the future.
