Tính's story

Mrs. Tính is 60 years old and married. She is a Muong ethnic minority and lives in Ngoc Lac district, a remote region far from the center. She operates a small restaurant, selling noodles to make a living. Her family is a low-income household in her village; moreover, this job is unstable.

She dreams of having a hygienic toilet to improve her family's living quality. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks, and equipment to build a toilet. In the future, Tính hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, and for her business to do well.
