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


A loan helped to purchase the sedge seeds to make mats that she can sell in the future.


Thoa's story

Mrs Thoa, a farmer, is 40 years old and has three children. Her family lives in Nong Cong district, a rural region. For more than ten years, she has worked in agriculture, farming industrial trees.

Her family is a low-income household in the village, and moreover, her job is unstable.

The main hardship that Thoa faces is lack of capital. She is requesting a loan to purchase the sedge seeds to make mats that she can sell in the future.

For this second loan, Thoa hopes for her business to do well, for her children to do well in school, and for her family to be healthy and happy.
