Là's story

Mrs Là, a farmer, is 57 years old and has two children. She lives in Thach Thanh, a mountainous district, very far from the center.

In her farm, she crops industrial trees and raises poultry. Her family is a low-income household in village, moreover this job is unstable.

Her family does not have a hygienic toilet to use. She is applying for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks, pipes in order to build a new toilet which she dreams of having for years to improve her family's life quality.
