Phượng'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.

Phượng's story

Phượng is a 31 year-old woman, and she is married with two young children. Her family lives in a small village of Quang Xuong district, a coastal area of Thanh Hoa province. This region often suffers from storms and floods.

Phượng's husband is a fisherman, like most of men in this village. He goes fishing off-shore a few weeks in the fish season. For two years, Phượng has operated a food stall, selling meat.

They work hard and dream of having a new house for their family and send their kids to college in the future.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns Phượng is the latrine is not hygienic. But her income is not enough to get a new one. She is requesting a loan to purchase construction materials and pay wages for some labourers.

In 2012, Phượng was a reputable customer of Thanh Hoa microfinance institution.
