A loan helped to buy sand, cement, bricks and equipment to build a new toilet.


Dân's story

Dân is 50 years old and married with two children. For more than 20 years, she's had a retail business selling dried food to make a living. Her family is a low-income household in the village and this region often suffers from storms because it's near the sea.

Having a hygienic toilet is Dân's dream to mitigate the health risk for her family, but their income is not enough to get one. She's asking for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks and equipment to build a new toilet.

This is Dân's first loan with Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution. She hopes her business will do well and her kids will have good jobs.
