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


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


Vân's story

Mrs Vân is 24 years old, and married. Her family lives in Tinh Gia, a district near the sea. For 3 years now, she works in a local factory, sewing clothes but this income is just enough to cover their living expenses.

Her family has a 2-hole latrine, which is not hygienic. Her earned income is not enough to get a new one.

She applied for a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks, and other required equipment to build a new toilet. This is Vân's first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution.

In the future, Vân hopes for her children to do well in school, her family to be healthy and happy, and for her business to do well.
