Funny Fisher-Women Group's story

Mrs Thanh is standing first from the right in the photo. She is 58 years old and married with 3 children.

In this group, her circumstances are the most difficult because her husband passed away a long time ago. She has to work hard for her and her children's lives. Thanh lives in Hau Loc district, a rural town in Thanh Hoa province. Her family is a low-income household in the village; moreover, this region often suffers natural disasters such as storms because it is near the sea.

Thanh has been a fisherwoman for more than 10 years. The main hardship that Thanh faces is a lack of capital. In 2011, Thanh joined the Thanh Hoa microfinance institution to improve her business. She has successfully repaid 5 loans from this institution, and she is now requesting a loan to purchase tools for fishing.

Thanh hopes to fish a lot of fish, and with her business profits, she wants to make sure her family is healthy and happy and to repair her house.
