Co Kho Group
Thiet is 26 years old and married with two children. One is in second grade and the other is just two years old. Thiet lives with her mother-in-law and supports a nephew who is studying in vocational school.
Cultivating rice is Thiet family's main production, but it doesn't bring enough income for her family's needs, especially because of the bad harvest.
Correspondingly, growing vegetables and cereals, breeding poultry and cattle are additional agriculture activities that her family is doing now. Not only that, Thiet's husband works in the construction field. To increase income, Thiet wants to apply for a loan from Anh Chi Em Program to expand her business. Specifically, she would use a portion of loan to buy piglets.
This is Thiet's first loan in the Anh Chi Em Program and she hopes that through this loan, her family's living standard could be improved. She dreams that her children will get the best education, go to university and escape the vicious circle of poverty.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
