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


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


Liên's story

Mrs Liên is 42 years old and married with three children. Her family lives in Tinh Gia district, near the sea.
She makes a living by selling seafood in the local market. Her husband is a fisherman. Her family's income depends on the fish season.

Her family has a latrine which is not hygienic. The cost to build a new toilet is higher than her family's income. She is asking for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks and other equipment to build a new toilet.

This is Liên’s fourth loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.
In the future, she plans to buy more seafood to resell, make more income to repay in time and buy some appliances for her family.
