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

A loan helped to buy construction materials to build a hygienic toilet.

Hường's story

Mrs Hường, a farmer, is 42 years old and has two children. She is a Muong ethnic minority and lives in Cam Thuy district, a mountainous region very far from the center.

To make a living, she grows industrial trees and raises poultry. But the income is just enough to cover the living expenses.

She and her husband would like to build a new toilet to improve their family's life condition. She is requesting a loan to buy construction materials to build a hygienic toilet.

With her first loan with Kiva, she feels grateful and sends thanks to all lenders. She hopes for a bright future for her family.
