Seeing my wife working hard, from small businesses to raising pigs but still cannot afford living, I discussed with my wife to open a bicycle and motorcycle repair shop. Although hesitate, my wife encourages me to start the business. In 2005, I borrowed VND 15 million from VBSP via the War Veteran’s Association, I bought tools and repair bikes for customers. I did not go to any school learning to repair bikes, I caught the technique and I got used to it, plus diligence and responsibility, more and more customers come to me. I also assembled a 3-wheeled motorbike myself to ride with my wife to Binh Dinh market early in the morning, buying vegetables and good to process before selling in local market. Thus,  family life is more and more stable, our children are taken good care”.
