Lan's story

Mrs. Lan is forty-seven years old with two children. She lives in a small village in Cam Thuy district, a mountainous region, very far from the center.

She is a farmer who crops rice and raises poultry to earn a living. Her family does not have a hygienic toilet to use, and their income is not enough to build one.

She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks, and equipment to build a toilet.

In the future, she hopes for her family to be healthy and for her business to do well.
