Dân's story

Ms Dân is 50 years old and she is a widow with three children. Her circumstances are very difficult, as her husband passed away a long time ago. She has to work hard to support her children and keep sending them to school.

She is a member of an ethnic minority living in Cam Thuy district, a mountainous region of Thanh Hoa province, very far from the center. She speaks ethnic minority languages and rarely leaves the village. So she has no opportunity to access financial services.

She works in agriculture raising poultry. Her household was recognized by the local government as poor; moreover, the market need is low in this region.

The main hardship that she faces is lack of money to keep sending her children to school, so she is requesting a loan to purchase school supplies and pay tuition fees for her children. In 2017, Dân joined Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution to improve her business. She has been a good-paying client of Thanh Hoa MFI for about two years.

Dân hopes for her children to do well in school, for her family to be healthy and happy, and for her business to do well.
