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


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


Hoa's story

Hoa is 31 years old and married. Her family lives in Nong Cong, a rural region of Thanh Hoa province.

Her family's main income depends on the profits of the farm, where she plants fruit trees and raises poultry.

This year, because of extreme weather, the income is low.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is that their latrine is not hygienic. But her income is not enough to get a new one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, bricks and equipment to build a toilet.



Having a new toilet will help her family improve the life's quality, as well as protect the environment.
