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

A loan helped to buy sand, cement, bricks and other equipment to build a toilet.

Hòa's story

Mrs Hòa, a farmer, is 29 years old and married. She lives in Tinh Gia district, near the sea which often suffers from storms and foods. For more than 4 years, she has raised poultry to earn a living.

Her family's latrine is not hygienic; it affects her family's health. For that reason, she is asking for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks and other equipment to build a toilet which with mitigate the health risks.

This is her second loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.

Her future plan is to save money to invest in her farm and make more profits to support kids in school.
