Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

She lives and works in Thanh Hoa city, an urban area in Thanh Hoa province. She has no dependents; her children are grown up.

In 2012, Mai joined Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women to improve her business. She has successfully repaid 2 loans from Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women.
