TTC Extra: Female Entrepreneurs in Sapa, Vietnam

Clip | 2m 44s

May Phuong and Ly My Chan are two Vietnamese women that leave their village, called Sapa, weeks at a time in hopes of making extra money to support their family. They talk about how their village is changing, with tourists visiting more often, and how the women of Sapa - not the men - are learning to speak English.
