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

A loan helped to buy a calf to raise.

Loan's story

Mrs. Loan is 51 years old and she is married. She is a Muong ethnic minority who lives in Ngoc Lac District, a mountainous region far from the center. The transportation here is very difficult.

She has worked in agriculture raising poultry and farming food to earn a living.

Her family is a low-income household in the village.

The main hardship that Loan faces is lack of capital to invest in her business. She is requesting a loan to buy a calf to raise. Then, she will use the profits to buy more calves to raise.

This is Loan's first loan with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution.

In the future, Loan hopes for her family to be healthy and happy, to build a new house, and for her business to do well.
