Group 8 At Lien Mac 1's story

Cuc, second from the left, works in the rice paddies where she makes about $33 (700,000 VND) a month. She is 33 years old and has two children: one young child at home and another in high school. Currently, her family does not have a sanitary toilet at home. She has been a member of the local Women's Union since 2001 and is involved in a campaign to improve local sanitation and hygiene. Members of the Women's Union decided that it is not enough for one family at a time to upgrade their facilities, but the entire neighborhood must be involved and committed. With this loan, Cuc and eight of her peers will each install a sanitary household toilet to improve the quality of life for all of their family members. These sanitary toilets will help their families reduce the risk of infection and diseases associated with the latrines currently being used. *Please note: the person on the far left is not a borrower, but a local community member.
