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

A loan helped to buy more seafood to sell.

Phương's story

Phương is a 47-year-old mother with three children. She and her family live in Quang Xuong District, a coastal area in Thanh Hoa Province that often suffers from storms.

Her husband is a fisherman. She earns a living by selling seafood at the local market. Their income is unstable and is dependent on the weather. Phương is requesting a loan to buy more seafood to sell. She is a reputable client of Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution.

In the future, she hopes that her business will do well so that she can improve her family’s living conditions.
