Luyến'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.

Luyến's story

Mrs. Luyến is 26 years old, and she is married with one child. Luyến lives in Hoang Hoa district, a coastal area in Thanh Hoa province. She has been working as a worker in a local factory, sewing clothes. She also grows vegetables and rice to make an extra income.

Her family is a low-income household in the village, moreover this region often suffers from natural disasters such as floods and drought.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is the latrine at home is not hygienic. But her income is not enough to get a new one. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to build a hygienic toilet.

This is Luyến's first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution.
