Uber has enabled many of Vietnamese taxi drivers for the first time to own their first four-wheels.

"Vu Ngoc Hung traded his 12-year-old Taiwanese scooter for a brand-new $28,500 Honda City after a lender financed 80 percent of his white four-door sedan based on his Uber fares. The program with Viet Capital Bank enabled him to more than triple his income to $850 a month through the app-based taxi service to support his wife and parents, who previously sold stationary from home to help make ends meet."

Apple products are popular in Vietnam, where a brand-savvy young population covets the instant recognition a slender iPhone brings, said Lam Nguyen, Ho Chi Minh City-based country director at International Data Corp.

“I used to buy 90 percent of my thread from China,” said Oanh, 52, who employs about 200 people at Viet Hung Garments & Embroidery. “Shifting sourcing may cost us more, but we need to think of it now, or it may be too late. You never know how things may turn out.”
