Kiên's story

Mr. Kiên is 35 years old and married with two children. He is a member of an ethnic minority and lives in the remote Cam Thuy district, a mountainous region in Thanh Hoa province.

He has worked in agriculture, farming food, for 10 years. He lacks the capital to invest in his farm, and he has no access to credit.

He wants to build a new toilet to improve his family's living standard above all. He is asking for a loan with Thanh Hoa MFI to buy building materials to build a new one.

In the future, Kiên hopes for his family to be healthy and happy, for his business to do well, and for his children to do well in school.
