Bloom Microventures is a non-profit social business (registered UK charity) providing microcredit to entrepreneurs living below the poverty line in developing countries using a unique model that harnesses the power of responsible tourism with microcredit to alleviate poverty.Bloom Microventures offers unique and authentic day tours to the rural countryside of Soc Son, just 40km north of Hanoi, that give you a chance to explore a side of Vietnam very few tourists will ever experience while making a major difference to the lives of local Vietnamese farmers. The tour will include actively engaging in and learning about community development by providing a microloan to a woman we are going to meet, a traditional lunch and a selection of the following activities: learning about and even trying rice and tomato farming, a bicycle ride through the countryside, a walk through the beautiful forests, trying your hand at traditional fishing, visiting the location of a mystical historical legend and exploring a temple complex!

A wonderful day and a tremendous organisation trying to make a difference to people's lives. A great way to see some aspects of rural life and meet local people away from tourist zones. The micro loan concept has great potential.

It's easy to jump on the regular tourist tours and be sealed in a bus away from "real" people, but it's just as easy to jump on this day tour. Convenient pick-up spots and a small passenger van make it really easy. Not only do...More

Wow this is an experience that you will remember forever. Not only do you get out of Hanoi to see the real Vietnam but you get to give a little back to people that really need it.

Brilliant trip. Wonderful guides (both local and ex-pat). A truly genuine experience in rural Vietnam. And to top it off the profit from the trip goes directly into a micro-loan to the people we visited. What an innovative and impactful idea. Great stuff!

A grat day, great people and a great use of our money. Loved connecting with normal rural Vietnamese people and understanding how going on this trip gives them a hand up - not just a hand out. Good job Bloom. Keep it up!
