A loan helped to pay for tuition and school supplies for her children.

Lê's story

Mrs. Lê is 49 years old and is married with two children. She has worked in agriculture farming food for more than 10 years. Lê lives in Nong Cong district, a rural town in Thanh Hoa province. Her household was recognized by the local government as poor; moreover, the market need is low in this region.

Lê is a reputable person in the community. This is her first loan in Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution.

The main hardship that she faces is the lack of money to keep sending her children to school. She is requesting a loan to pay for tuition and school supplies for her children.

Lê hopes for her business to do well, to make enough money to provide for her kids, and for her family to be healthy and happy.
