Thom and her husband take the main responsibility in providing for the family. They mostly work at agriculture production such as raising chickens, pigs, fish and growing rice, and fruit. Besides, her husband works extra for local construction employer to better cover living expenses for the family.
This is the third loan that Thom has had in Anh Chi Em Program. She said that she was really interested in the loan and training services of the Program. In the previous loan from Anh Chi Em, she bought fish food and thanks to the training techniques in raising fish she received, she produced a high yield and received a good profit. This time she will continue using the loan to buy fish food and expand her fish farming.
She hopes this business plan will improve significantly her family income so that she can afford to buy her children new toys and books, as well as purchase some new furniture for her house.
In the picture, Thom stands first from the right on the first line, with a very pretty smile on her face.

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.
