Lan's story

Mrs Lan, a hardworking woman, is 30 years old and has two children. She lives in Quang Xuong district, near the sea.

Her husand is a fisherman. She sells seafood in the local market to make a living.

This region is often suffered by natural disasters such as floods and storms.

One of the most critical issues that concerns her is the latrine is not hygienic. But, her income is not enough to get a new one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to build a toilet.

Her future plan is to buy more tools for fishing. Then, they will save money to send their kids to college in the future.
