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

A loan helped to build a toilet for her family.

Hoa's story

Hoa is 46 years old and has three children. Her family lives in the Hau Loc district, a coastal region of Thanh Hoa province.

Her husband is a fisherman and often goes fishing offshore. Hoa sells seafood in the local market. Their income is unstable.

Hoa's family does not have a hygienic toilet to use. She asks for a loan to buy construction materials and pay for labour to build a new one, in order to improve her family’s living conditions. In the future Hoa hopes for her business to do well, and to buy new fishing tools for her husband.
