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


A loan helped to purchase sugarcane seedlings and to pay for other production cost (fertilizer, pesticides, labour, etc.).


Thu's story

Mrs Thu, a hardworking farmer, 44 years old and has three children. She is an ethnic minority, lives in Thach Thanh District, a mountainous region, very far from the center.

Her family has a sugarcane farm. After ten months, she will harvest the sugarcane trees and sell it in the local market.

Because her family's main income is from this farm, she wants to ask for a loan to invest in her business.

She is requesting a loan to buy sugarcane seedlings and to pay for other production cost (fertilizer, pesticides, labour, etc.).

This is her second loan cycle with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution.
