Ban Noong Tl - D11 Group
Her household is no longer considered a poor household and therefore doesn't receive as much support as they once did. However, the family still has many economic and social difficulties. The three daughters dropped out of school to support their mother (two of them completed 9th grade and another completed 11th grade). Family members cultivate rice and work for the local construction company. The recent rice harvest was very bad due to insect damage. To cover living expenses, she also breeds swans, chickens, and grows grain and vegetables.
Danh wants to buy pigs to expand her business. She hopes that through ACE's loan and training, she can increase her income and manage her business better. She wants to rebuild her thatched cottage and gradually escape from 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.
