They asked: “what can she do in that small town?”. Explaining that question, she told: “Because I love Da Lat.

However, when the bank debt reached 30 million, with a terrible interest rate of 10% at that time, no one didn’t help her anymore. Maybe she will go to jail if she does not have money to pay the bank.

I felt headache because of debt, but I told myself, I was right, I will be the winner” Dang Viet Nga said.
