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

A loan helped to buy uniforms and books, and pay for tuition for her two children.

Liệu's story

Mrs Liệu is 36 years old and the mother of two children who are now in secondary school. Her family lives in a fishing village in the Hau Loc district, which is near the sea. For the last six years, she has earned a living by running a manufacturing business where she makes fishing nets. Her income is unstable, which is one reason why she is asking for a loan to buy uniforms and books and pay her children's tuition. She will work hard to be sure they can go to school because she wants them to have a bright future. This is her sixth loan request with Thanh Hoa MFI. She feels grateful for this assistance and hopes for her business to do well in the future.
