Lại's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy construction materials and pay labor costs to build a new toilet.


Lại's story

Mrs. Lại is 46 years old and has three children. Her family lives in the Quang Xuong district, near the sea where they have often suffered from storms and floods.

For more than 10 years, she has had a manufacturing business making rice vermicelli noodles. She and her husband try to work hard to their raise kids and help them have a better future.

For years, they have wanted to build a hygienic toilet, but their income is not sufficient to get one. Now, she is asking for a loan to buy construction materials and pay labor costs to build a new toilet. This is her fourth loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.

In the future, she hopes that her business does well in order to have enough money to send her kids to school.
