In Giang Son Dong Commune, Do Luong District, in 2013, Trang started investing in farms and the cattle feed trade. She was lauded for her achievements in the business of farming and animal husbandry by the local television channel in mid 2013. Since then, she has borrowed money to expand her business, roll debts between banks and take part in a loan club. The locals trusted her and lent her money.

Police in Do Luong District are continuing to investigate the case. – VNS
