Định's story

Mrs Định is 57 years old, and she is married. She is a Muong ethnic minority, lives in Ngoc Lac district, a mountainous region and far from the center. She has worked in agriculture, farming food, for more than 20 years. Her family is a low-income household in a village; moreover, this job is unstable.

Her family does not have a hygienic toilet to use and her income is not enough to get one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick, and equipment to build a toilet.

This is Định's first loan with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution.

In the future, Định hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, for her children to do well in school, and for her business to do well.
