A loan helped to build a toilet for her family.

Thảo's story

Mrs. Thảo is 39 years old married. She has three children, all are attending school. Her family lives in a small village, located in the Hoang Hoa district, a coastal area of Thanh Hoa province. Her husband is a fisherman and goes off-shore in the season. She makes mesh nets to sell and also sells seafood in the local market. She is planning to make fish sauce to sell in the future, because this business has potential.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns her is their lack of a hygienic latrine. She is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to build a new toilet. In 2011, Thảo joined Thanh Hoa microfinance institution to improve her business. Thảo has successfully repaid eight previous loans.
