Thảo is 49 years old and she is married with one child. Thảo is the group leader of the 01.05.07 Đông Sơn solidarity group, which consists of seven members. Her child is grown up, so Thảo lives with no dependents in Thanh Hoa city, an urban town in Thanh Hoa province.

In 2010, Thảo joined Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women to improve her business. Thảo has successfully repaid three loans from Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women. Thảo has been involved in this business for five years. The main hardship that Thảo faces in her business is the lack of capital.

About Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution Limited Liability (Thanh Hoa MFI)

Thanh Hoa MFI works to provide credit to women and their families in the central Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa, one of the poorest regions of the country. The institution's target clients are poor and low-income women who have the ability to work but lack the capital. Accordingly, Thanh Hoa MFI prioritizes single mothers, low-income women with children who have dropped out of primary school, and Viet Nam’s poorest women who cannot access any formal financial services.

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.
