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

A loan helped to purchase sand, cement, brick, and equipment to build a toilet.

Mai's story

Mrs. Mai is 42 years old and has three children. She lives in Tinh Gia, a district near the sea.

She and her husband have worked in agriculture farming food to earn a living. But this job is unstable because it depends on the weather.

Her family does not have a hygienic toilet to use but her income is not enough to get one. She is asking for a loan to buy materials to build a new toilet.

Having a hygienic toilet has been her dream for years. She feels grateful. In the future, she and her husband plan to buy more seedlings to grow in the farm and raise more chickens.
