This is not the summit of her ambitions, however. “I want to develop my business even further in the future”, she insists. Pictured here, Hue’s sister-in-law helps the children get ready for school. With a higher household income, Hue and her family have been able to purchase a motorbike, a refrigerator and a biogas unit. LOCATION: Coong Village, Huy Tuong, Son La Province, Vietnam.
