Thơm's story

Mrs Thơm is 47 years old and married. 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 goes out of the village. So she has no opportunity to access financial services.

She has worked in agriculture, farming food. Her family is a low-income household in the village; moreover this region often suffers from natural disasters such as floods and droughts.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is not having clean water to use. But her income is not enough to get a new clean water system. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks and equipment to install a clean water system.

This is Thơm's first loan with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution. Thơm hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, for her children to do well in school, and that she can make enough money to provide for her kids.
