Hoa's story

Mrs Hoa is 33 years old and married. Her family lives in a village near the sea.

Her husband is a fisherman, and she sells the fish in the local market to make a living.

Her family is a low-income household in village because their job is unstable.

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

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

In the future, Hoa hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, for her children to do well in school, and to buy a motorbike.
