Mai's story

Mrs. Mai is 51 years old and has two children. She lives in a fishing village in Hau Loc district.

Like most of the locals, her husband is a fisherman. She has had a retail business selling dried food for more than 10 years. They would like to have a new toilet to improve their family's living standards. She is asking for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks, and pipes to build a hygienic toilet.

This is her second loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.

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