To make a living, Minh prepares and sells food in the local community, mainly seafood products such as fish and shrimp. Minh has been in this business for more than 5 years and earns about 1.000.000 VND each month. Minh joined the Thanh Hoá Fund for Poor Women in 2004 to borrow funds. She successfully repaid the 3.079.800 VND loan, which she used to expand her business and improve her living situation.

As the leader of the 7-member group 6-Quảng Hưng, Minh is now requesting her 9th loan by Thanh Hoá Fund for Poor Women so she can continue expanding her business and supplement the family's income. Each group member will receive a 6.000.000 VND individual loan, but they are all responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members if someone is delinquent or defaults. Other group members want to expand their businesses. Lý N. Thị (age 31), will use the funds for her food stall. Phường N. Thị (age 45), Thường N. Thị (age 35), and Vân N. Thị (age 55), will use their loans to support their businesses raising livestock. Thu N. Thị (age 35) will fund her business raising crops, and Bắc N.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
