Quỳnh's story

Mrs Quỳnh is 24 years old and she is married. Her family lives in a small village in Tinh Gia district near the sea. She has worked at a local factory sewing clothes for three years to make a living. Her family is from a low-income household in the village.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is the latrine is not hygienic. Her income is not enough to get a new one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks and equipment to build a toilet. Having a hygienic toilet will help her family improve their quality of life and protect the environment.

This is Quỳnh's first loan with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution. Her future plan is to raise chicks and grow some fruit trees to make more income.
