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

A loan helped to buy sand, cement, bricks, and pipes for building a new toilet.

Nga's story

Nga is 28 years old and has two children. She lives in the small village of Nong Cong, which is in an agricultural area. Nga and her husband cultivate rice and raise poultry in order to earn a living. This type of work in unstable, but she has no other choice so that she can take care of her young children without having to take an outside job.

Her family does not have a hygienic toilet to use. For this reason, Nga is requesting a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks, and pipes for building a new toilet. This will help mitigate the health risks to her family, especially her young children. Nga is receiving her sixth loan from Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution.

In the future, she hopes for her family to be healthy and for her business to do well.
