Group 15 - An Thanh 01's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for the construction of a hygienic toilet and a hand-washing device with soap.

Group 15 - An Thanh 01's story

Luom is 40 years old. Currently, Luom and her husband work in agricultural production with a total monthly income of approximately 1,400,000 VND. They have two children: one grown-up and one is attending secondary school. Luom and her husband are living in a house with the paternal parents who are old and often get sick. She has to support them financially. She has been a member of the Women's Union since 1990. Like other members of her group, due to economic hardship, her family is currently using a double-pit latrine which is now degraded. With a portion of this loan, Luom will be able to build a hygienic septic tank latrine and a hand-washing device with soap. Those facilities would also help her family improve their health and living conditions, as well as afford safety for them, particularly at night and during rainstorms. In addition, the facilities will provide convenience, cleanliness, and privacy for all family members, while contributing to the environmental protection of the community. In the picture, Luom is the first from the right.
