Lan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more shoes to resell.

Lan's story

Mrs Lan is 44 years old and has four children. She and her husband work hard to raise their kids and send them to school. Her family lives in an urban region of Thanh Hoa province.

To make a living, she sells shoes in the local market. This job has potential but she lacks capital to invest in it. She is applying for a loan to buy more shoes to resell. This is her third loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.

In the future, she hopes to have enough money to open her own big shoe shop.
