A loan helped to purchase the construction materials to build a toilet.

Nam's story

Mrs. Nam is 32 years old and married. Her family lives in a fishing village in the Tinh Gia district.

She makes a living by making and selling shrimp sauce and fish sauce. This job depends on the weather.

She is concerned about a critical problem: the family lartrine is not hygienic. She is requesting a loan to purchase construction materials to build a proper toilet.

This will let her family have better sanitation and living conditions.

In the future, she plans to save money to invest in her business making sauces.
