Định's story

Mrs Định, 54, is a widow. She is an ethnic minority and lives in Ngoc Lac district, a remote place.

Every day, she gets up at 4 am to prepare fruits and vegetables to sell in the local market. She tries her utmost to make enough money to send her two kids to school.

For years, she has dreamt of having a hygienic toilet but the income from her business is not enough to get one.

Now she is asking for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks and pipes to build a new toilet which will improve her family's life significantly.

This is Định's first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution.

Her future plan is to save money to invest in her business and to buy more chicks to raise in her small farm.
