Loan's story

Loan is 49 years old and married with 3 children. She has operated a food stall selling fish for more than 10 years.

Loan lives in Hoang Hoa district, a rural town in Thanh Hoa province. Her family is a low-income household and is situated in a region that often suffers natural disasters such as storms because it is near the sea.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns Loan is that the family latrine is not hygienic. But her income is not enough to replace it.

Loan is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and the equipment to build a toilet. This is her first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution.

Loan hopes to build a new house, to maintain a successful business and for her business to do well.
