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

Liên's story

Agriculture is the main activity economy. She has worked in agriculture growing industrial crops for more than 10 years.

Her family does not have hygienic toilet to use. She is aware that it is harmful to their health and environmet but their income is not enough to get one. She is asking for a loan to buy construction materials to build a new toilet.
