Lan's story

Mrs. Lan is 32 years old, and she is married. She belongs to an ethnic minority and lives in Ngoc Lac, a remote region of Thanh Hoa province.

She has had a retail business selling clothes for more than 5 years.

She would like to build a hygienic toilet for her family, but the income is not enough to get one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks, and equipment to build a toilet. This is Lan's first loan with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution.

By participating in this loan, you will help her family improve their life's quality and protect the environment.
