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


A loan helped to build a latrine to improve the health of her family.


Xuan's story

Ms. Xuan is 49 years old and is a hard-working woman. There are 6 people in her family, and they have been living without a latrine for a long time, which has been very difficult for her family. The lack of a latrine also makes her concerned about diseases that can be spread as a result of poor sanitation.

Consequently, she is applying for a loan to construct a latrine. With this loan, she will buy building materials, such as cement and gravel, plus she will pay for the cost of labor. She plans to pay back the money with the income from her small business.
