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

A loan helped to buy fish to process and sell.

Hằng's story

Mrs Hằng is 51 years old and has four children. Hằng lives in Hau Loc district, a region near the sea.

Her husband is a fisherman, and she sells fish in the local market. Her family is a low-income household in village, and her job depends on weather.

In 2011, Hằng took out a loan from Thanh Hoa microfinance institution to improve her business. She has successfully repaid 6 loans.

She is planning to buy fish to process and sell and thus reduce her dependence on the weather and make her profits more stable. For that reason, she is asking for another loan.

In the future, Hằng hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, for her business to do well, and to build a new house.
