Phong's story

Mrs. Phong is 59 years old and has two children. She lives in Ngoc Lac district, a remote region where the transportation is very difficult.

To earn a living, she has been running a small restaurant selling rice noodles for more than 10 years. However, the income is unstable.

Now, she is applying for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks, and other materials to build a new toilet, which she dreams of having for years.

In the future, she hopes for her business to do well and for a better life for her family.
