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


A loan helped to buy sand, cement, bricks, and pipes to install a water system.


Hồng's story

Mrs Hồng, a farmer, is 51 years old and married with two children. She lives in a remote village of Cam Thuy district, a mountainous region.

She has worked in agriculture, farming food and raising poultry.

Her family is a low-income household in village. Moreover, this region often suffers natural disasters, such as floods or drought.

Her family does not have clean water to use. They use the water from the well and stream. Now, she is asking for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks, and pipes to install a water system.

For this first loan with Kiva and Thanh Hoa MFI, she feels grateful and promises to keep aside a part of her profit to pay the loan on time.
