CAPTION: “We are working on building our customer base”, says Miss Ha of the Transaction Office of Cooperative Huy Tuong II in Hanoi, as she reaches for some of the pork that's produced by the farmers of the commune (in future, this transaction office will be split from Cooperative Huy Tuong II to become a unit of the Cooperative Union, to be established in 2016). “Many of our orders are for staff of particular schools and companies, and we also have a website on which people can place orders”, she goes on. They have to target customers with stable incomes, as the price is a little bit higher than other places in order to cover transportation costs. “Our customers appreciate the quality of our products”, she points out, “so it works out. We want to continue to help farmers make good quality products, so that the people of Hanoi can have access to high quality produce while supporting local producers”. LOCATION: Transaction Office, Cooperative Huy Tuong II, Hanoi, Vietnam. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Tran Ha.
