Thinh's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to build a latrine to improve her family’s health.

Thinh's story

Thinh is 46 years old and married with 2 children. She is a farmer and has earned her living through this work for many years. She is now thinking about building a new latrine in her house. She has applied for a loan from Kiva to pay for labor costs and buy the necessary materials to build the latrine. This is very important to her because it is an everyday necessity. She hopes that the latrine will improve her life and contribute to protecting the environment. She promises to put a part of her income toward repaying the loan monthly.
