Two People in Vietnam Have A Plan To Cut Down On Pollution: Mushrooms
By Ben Schiller
Trang Tran grew up in a working class community in Vietnam. She was the first person in her family to go to college, and the first to go abroad. She studied at Colorado State University and graduated with a MBA degree in May.
Living in the U.S. helped her flesh out an idea she's had for awhile: A business growing and selling mushrooms. Her startup, called Fargreen, is now working with 10 Vietnamese farmers to cultivate oyster and paddy straw varieties. Tran and her partner Thuy Dao plan to sell the produce at food markets and specialty stores.
