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


A loan helped to purchase sand, cement, bricks, pipes, and equipment to build a toilet.


Cường's story

Cường is 34 years old, and he has three children. His family lives in Quang Xuong district, a region near the sea.

Cường runs a retail business selling clothes. However the income is unstable.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns Cường is not having latrine at home. He requested a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks, pipes, and equipment to build a toilet, which will improve his family's living conditions.

This is Cường's first loan with Thanh Hoa MFI.

In the future, Cường hopes for his business to prosper, and for his kids to do well in school.
