Hiền's story

Mrs. Hiền is 27 years old and married. Her family lives in a fishing village of the Quang Xuong district. She sells fish at the local market. Additionally, she raises poultry and livestock. Her family is a low-income household in the village. Moreover, these jobs are unstable.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is not having a latrine. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks, and equipment to build a toilet. Having a hygienic toilet will help her family improve their quality of life as well as protect the environment.
