Huong's Group
In this Group: Huong, Thang, Nga, Dung, Hoa, Sa
Huong is 54 years old and lives with her son and her husband. For the past 12 years Huong has been running a store selling home appliances and electrical products from the front of her house to earn an income to support her family. She is the Group Leader of a 6-member loan group of women who live in Ho Chi Minh City. In the picture she is in the third from left, wearing a sun flower printed blouse.

Each of the other group members is requesting a loan to fund income-generating activities. Huong is requesting a loan to purchase a better quality and greater variety of electrical products such as electrical wire, light bulbs, and power points to sell at her store. She hopes this will enable her to better meet the needs of her customers and attract additional ones. She also hopes that through her loan she will be able to increase her income and save money for any future difficulties facing her family.

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.
