Hoa's story

Hoa is 63 years old and married. She is an ethnic minority living in Cam Thuy district, a mountainous region of Thanh Hoa province, very far from center. She speaks ethnic minority languages and rarely goes out of the village. So she has no opportunity to have access to financial services.

She has worked in agriculture raising poultry. Her family is a low-income household in the village, moreover this region often suffered from natural disasters such as floods, drought.

The main hardship that Hoa faces is lack of capital. She is requesting a loan to purchase baby poultry to raise and sell in the future.

This is Hoa’s first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution. With her business profit, Hoa hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, for her children to find a good job, and to build a new house.
