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


A loan helped to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to build a new toilet.


Tâm's story

Tâm is 32 years old and has two children. Her family lives in Nong Cong district, an agricultural region of Thanh Hoa province. She has worked in agriculture raising poultry and farming food.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is that the latrine is not hygienic, but her income is not enough to get a new one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to build a new toilet.

This is Tâm's first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution.

Having a hygienic toilet will help her family improve their life quality and protect the environment.
