Bản's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more fish for Bản to sell.

Bản's story

Bản is 62 years old and divorced. She lives in Quang Xuong, a rural town in Thanh Hoa Province, Vietnam. Her income is lower than the national average.

Bản is a reputable person in her community, and for more than ten years now she has sold fish to earn a living there. The market for fish, though, is a competitive one in this region, and so the lack of capital to improve her living conditions is her main challenge.

In 2015, Bản joined Kiva's field partner Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution to improve her business. She has taken out and successfully repaid three prior loans. She has now applied for a 20,000,000 VND loan to buy more fish to sell.

With her business profits in hand, Bản hopes to maintain a successful business and for her family to be healthy and happy.
