Lan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more vegetable seeds to grow and sell.

Lan's story

Lan is 37 years old and married with two children. Her family lives in Thieu Hoa, a rural region of Thanh Hoa, one of the poorest provinces.

For over 10 years, she has worked in agriculture, raising poultry and cropping vegetables to make a living. The income is low because her farm is small. She would like to invest in her business to make more income but lacks capital.

Now, she is asking for a loan to buy more vegetable seeds to grow and sell in the local market. She is a reputable customer of Thanh Hoa MFI.

In the future, she hopes for her business to do well and to have enough money to send her kids to college.
