Linh's story

Mrs Linh is a farmer, 34 years old and married. Her family lives in Quang Xuong district, an area near the sea which often suffers from storms and floods.

She grows rice and raises poultry to earn a living.

Her family has a downgraded toilet. She would like to build a new toilet to replace the old one but her income is not enough to get one. She is asking for a loan to buy construction materials to build a new toilet. This is her fourth loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.

In the future, Linh hopes for her children to do well in school, and for her business to do well.
