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

A loan helped to buy more seafood to resell.

Sau's story

Mrs Sau is 39 years old and has three children. She lives in Quang Xuong district, near the sea. Her husband was very ill, he does not work for income. The difficulties of life sit on her shoulders.

She sells seafood in the local market to make a living. She wants to invest in her business to make more profits to improve her family's income but she lacks capital.

She is asking for a loan to buy more dried seafood to resell. This is her fourth loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.

She hopes for her business to do well to escape from poverty, to have enough money to send kids to school.
