Huong is a 30-year-old Thai woman and lives in a family of 8 which include her in-laws, husband, two siblings and two children.

Her family relies on agricultural activities such as cultivating rice, vegetables, and fruit and raising cattle, chickens and fish.

In order to cover tuition fees for her two school-aged children, a 4th and 1st grader, Huong's husband works for a local construction company. Despite all her efforts, her school of fish died this winter. This incident has brought even more difficulties to her family.

Huong hopes that her children will escape the vicious circle of poverty by sending them to school. Regardless of the bad situation now, Huong doesn't stop trying. She will use this loan to buy pig and fish food.

In the picture, Huong is second from the left.

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.
