"I am Nguyen Hue, 6th grade 11 years. My younger sister is in 4th grade. My uncle is 39 years old, and he works on the street (finding work when he can).
I lost my dad when I was 2 years old, and my mother died last year.
This is my house. We rent this house, it costs 400,000 (month).”

How would you like Catalyst to help you?
