  1. I think you made a great choice for your first investment.
    It looks like these people really work for a living and they look like they’re collaborating to make a better life for their children.It must be difficult for Mrs. Thy Thuch to run a farm without a husband.

  2. Hi,
    Good choice! That is what my dad would have invested in. He says: “I would invest in farming because you can’t starve, you will not buy food, you will make the food”. Our group (S.T.W.) invested in retail, grocery store.

  3. I made this loan with my two partners. I found our choice good. this money we gave Mrs.Thy will help not only her it will help a group of 16 people . I hope she will do good things with this money .
