Mekong Plus and its partners, Thiên Chí and Anh Dương, their Vietnamese partners, do not build schools or clinics. They instead fund microcredit loans. With Mekong Plus, no microloan is given without prior training and without the assistance of a field officer in the borrower’s community. Mekong Plus’s teams give priority to people who try hard themselves. Those households where the children’s education is a high priority, where hygiene is improved, where the people make a big effort by themselves, those people are priority targets for Mekong Plus’s programs.
