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

A loan helped to purchase baby chicks and ducks to raise and sell in the future.

Thìn's story

Mrs Thìn is 59 years old and has two children. Her family lives in Dong Son, a rural district.

For more than 10 years, she has worked in agriculture farming food and raising poultry.

Her family is a low-income household in a village, moreover the market need is low in this region.

In 2013, Thìn joined Thanh Hoa microfinance institution to improve her business. Thìn has successfully repaid 4 loans.

Because her family's income is from this business, she is requesting a loan to purchase baby chicks and ducks to raise and sell in the future.

With her business profits, Thìn hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, to build a new house, and for her children to do well in school.
