Thanh's story

Thanh is a 33-year-old farmer with two children. He is a Muong ethnic minority who lives in a small village of Cam Thuy, a mountainous district.

He has worked in agriculture, farming food, for more than 10 years to earn a living. But the income is unstable because this region often suffers from floods and landslides.

One of the most critical issues that concerns him is that his latrine is not hygienic. But his income is not enough to get a new one. He is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks and equipment to build a toilet, which will mitigate the health risk for his family.

His future plan is to save money to buy more seedlings and chicks to raise on his farm.
