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

A loan helped to build a latrine to improve her family's health and sanitation.

Hoanh's story

Ms Hoanh, who appears in the picture, is a 51-year-old woman. She is a married woman with three children and she lives with her family in a rural area in Vietnam. For many years, they tried to earn money to build a latrine inside their house but until now, they had not turned their dream into reality. This badly affects her family’s health. She is applying for a loan from Kiva to cover materials for a new latrine. She earns her living by raising livestock and she can use the income from this to repay the loan. She believes that the latrine will improve her family's lives significantly.
