A loan helped to purchase sand, cement, bricks, and equipment to build a hygienic toilet.


Thanh's story

Thanh is 35 years old and has two children. Her husband lives in Ngoc Lac district, a mountainous region where the transportation is very difficult, especially in the flood season. To make a living, she sells beverages, but the income is unstable.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is not having money to build a new toilet. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks, and equipment to build a hygienic toilet, which will be very useful to her family.

She feels grateful for this first loan with Kiva and Thanh Hoa MFI. She sends thanks to all lenders.
