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

A loan helped to buy books and pay tuition for her kids.

Trang's story

Mrs Trang is 35 years old and married with two children. She belongs to an ethnic minority, lives in Ngoc Lac, a mountainous region of Thanh Hoa province, very far from the center.

She has worked in agriculture raising poultry and farming food to make a living, but the income is unstable.

She is aware the importance of education for her children, so she works hard to make enough money to send them to school.

Now, she is asking for a loan to buy books and pay tuition for her kids.

This is her second loan cycle with Thanh Hoa MFI.

In the future, she hopes for her business to do well, and for her kids to go to college.
