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


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


Huong's story

Ms Huong. aged 46, is married with two children. They have been living in a house that doesn’t have a hygienic latrine for a long time.

She is now concerned about getting a new latrine. So she asked for a loan to pay for the labor fee to build the latrine. This is very important to her because it is an everyday necessity. She hopes that when she has the latrine, health and living conditions will be improved.

With income from a livestock business, she is able to repay the loan monthly.
