Thuoi's Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to send her son to the hospital to get a medical check.

Thuoi's Group's story

Thuoi, 31 years old, is an ethnic Thai woman. Her family has three members, including herself, her husband, and her son. The family lives in Mai Son district, Son La province.

The main income of her family is from cultivation and breeding, so it is just enough to cover the living expenses of the family and save a small amount. Her son has a problem with his lungs, so Thuoi wants to send him to the hospital to get a medical check but she does not have enough money to do. Therefore, she wants to borrow a loan for this purpose.

She hopes the loan will help her son have a medical check and treatment on time so his health will improve soon. She will work hard to get money to repay the loan on time.
