Group 7 At Lien Mac 1
In this Group: Toàn, Mai, Thóa, Thúy, Tính, Mai, Lý, Thiềm
Toan, pictured fifth from the left, makes about $37 (800,000 VND) every month working in the rice paddies. She is 49 years old and has two grown children. She has not been able to install a hygienic toilet at home. However, as a member of the local Women's Union since 1993, she recently joined a campaign to improve the community's sanitation and hygiene. With this loan, she and seven of her peers will each build a hygienic toilet at home that will improve their family's and the community's quality of life. With eight households making a commitment, this neighborhood will be able to enjoy better health by avoiding many of the common infections and diseases associated with the unsafe latrines currently being used.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of EastMeetsWest Foundation's initiative to expand access to clean water and improved sanitation to poor, rural households in Vietnam. These loans reduce rates of waterborne disease and increase dignity. When you fund this loan, it will be disbursed to the foundation, which will then lend the funds to the provincial Women's Union, an organization that works closely with EastMeetsWest to provide funding to poor families to improve water access, build clean latrines, teach improved sanitation practices and more.

About Thrive Networks

Thrive Networks creates sustainable and catalytic solutions to difficult development problems. Specifically, the organization works with community groups in rural, underserved areas to help make household access to clean water and improved sanitation desirable and affordable. Funds from Kiva lenders will be used to help borrowers finance the construction of a household latrine, ensuring a healthier future for each family and the wider community.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
