Năm's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase sedge grass to weave and sell mats and hats.

Năm's story

Mr. Năm is 37 years old and has three children. He has had a weaving business for more than 10 years.

He wants to maintain the traditional job but he lacks capital. He is requesting a loan to purchase sedge grass to weave mats and hats to sell.

This is his second loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.

With his business profit, Năm hopes for his business to do well and to be able to buy more supplies and equipment for his business.
