Xuân's story

Ms. Xuân is 43 years old and she is a widow with two children. Her husband died and all the difficulties of life lay on her shoulders. She is an ethnic minority living in Cam Thuy district, a mountainous region of Thanh Hoa province, very far from a center. She speaks ethnic minority languages and rarely goes out of the village, so she has no opportunity to access financial services.

She has had a retail business selling hair for more than 10 years. Her family is a low-income household in the village; moreover, this job is unstable.

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 system. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to install a clean water system.

This is Xuân's first loan with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution. With her business profit, Xuân hopes for her business to do well, for her children to do well in school, and for her family to be healthy and happy.
