“I am confident about what we are doing now. We are growing in the right way”
Ms Tiên was born in the Mekong, where she lived with her grandmother. She now lives in Ho Chi Minh City and is the first farmer in the family. The De Heus office is located just 10 minutes from her home. However, her farm is quite a distance from the city (45 km) to which she commutes every day. “Most farmers live close to their farms in the countryside,” she says. But Ms Tiên prefers the hustle and bustle of city.
