Hòa'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.

Hòa's story

Hòa is 42 years old and married with two children. Hòa lives in Thanh Hoa city in Thanh Hoa province.

She has operated a food stall, selling fruit for locals. Her family is a low-income household in the village, and this job is unstable.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is not having money to repair the toilet. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to repair the toilet.

This is Hòa's first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution, and she hopes for her business to do well so she can keep sending her children to college.
