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

A loan helped to buy construction materials to build a new toilet.

Soạn's story

Mrs Soạn is 57 years old and married with two children. Soạn lives in Quang Xuong district, a rural town in Thanh Hoa province.

Like most of the women in the village, she raises poultry and farming food and the family's main income is from this farm.

For year, her family has used a latrine but it is unhygienic. She is asking for a loan to buy construction materials to build a new toilet to improve her family's life quality.

This is Soạn's first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution.

In the future, she hopes for her business to do well and for her grandchildren to do well in school.
