Hoa's story

Mrs Hoa is 33 years old and she is married with 2 children. She is an ethnic minority living in Nong Cong district, a rural town in Thanh Hoa province, very far from the center. She speaks ethnic minority languages and rarely goes out of the village. So she has no opportunity to access to financial services.

She has worked in agriculture, raising poultry for more than 10 years. Her family is a low-income household in the village, moreover the market need is low in this region.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is not having latrine . But her income is not enough to get a new one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to build toilet.

This is Hoa's first loan with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution. Hoa hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, for her business to do well, and to make enough money to provide for her kids.
