Thắm's story

Ms Thắm is 56 years old and she is a widow with 3 children. Her circumstance is very difficult as her husband passed away a long time ago. She has to work hard to foster her children and keep sending them to school.

She has worked in agriculture raising poultry. Thắm lives in Hoang Hoa district, a rural town in Thanh Hoa province. Her family is a low-income household in the village, moreover this job is unstable.

The main hardship that she faces is lack of money to keep sending her children to school. She is requesting a loan to purchase school supplies and pay tuition fees for her children.

In 2014, Thắm joined Thanh Hoa microfinance institution to improve her business. Thắm has successfully repaid 4 loans from Thanh Hoa microfinance institution.

With her business profit, Thắm hopes for her children to do well in school, to maintain a successful business, and to build a new house.
