* not pictured
Tuyet, 33, is an unmarried Thai woman. She lives with her brother, sister-in-law, and their three children who attend school. She and her brother and his wife work in agriculture to grow rice, and raise pigs, buffalo, chickens, and plant a vegetable garden. Regardless of their considerable efforts, they face difficulties including the high price of supplies, low price of their products, and insect issues.

Tuyet said that she had heard a lot about Anh Chi Em Program's activities and she wanted to acquire a loan and training so that she could avoid the damage caused by insects and find the solution for the pricing of products and supplies.

This is her first loan in Anh Chi Em and she will use a portion of the loan to buy chickens and ducks to expand her business. Tuyet hopes that she will be able to afford to move out and live independently. She also dreams of getting married to a good man and raising her children to be successful in a career and life.

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.
