but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Viên's story

Viên is 52 years old, and she is married with three children, who are independent now. Her family lives in a small village, located in Quang Xuong district, a coastal area of Thanh Hoa province. Fishing is the main business here.

Her husband is a fisherman, fishing off-shore sometimes in the fish season. She sells seafood in the local market and makes fish sauce for sale. They are planning to buy more fish to make dried fish, because this business has potential.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is that the latrine is not hygienic, and she does not have enough income to get a new one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick, and equipment to build a toilet, which will improve her family's living condition.

In 2016, Viên joined Thanh Hoa microfinance institution to improve her business. Viên has successfully repaid 7 loans.
