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

A loan helped to buy construction materials and pay for labour to build a new toilet.

Luyến's story

Mrs. Luyến, a farmer, is 63 years old and has three children. Since her husband died, her circumstances have been very difficult with the financial burden of raising kids laid on her shoulders.

She has worked in agriculture farming food. Sometimes, she works at other farms for income.

She has dreamed of having a hygienic toilet for years but the income is not enough to get one.

Now, she is asking for a loan to buy construction materials and pay for labor to build a new toilet. This is her third loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI. In the future, she hopes for her business to do well.
