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

A loan helped to buy construction materials and pay for labour costs.

Hiền's story

Mrs. Hiền is 59 years old and has three children. She lives in a small village of Quang Xuong district, near the sea. For more than 10 years, she has had a retail business selling housewares and dried food.

Mrs. Hiền's family is a low-income household in the village, and this region often suffers from storms and flooding. For years, she has wanted to build a hygienic toilet for her family, but the cost is higher than her family's income.

Because the installment every month is suitable for her, she decided to take out her second loan from Thanh Hoa MFI to buy construction materials and pay for labour costs to build a new toilet.

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