Thinh's Group
In this Group: Thinh, Lien , Dong, Trong, Bac, Tham
Thinh T. T. is 45 years old. She lives in Co Duong village. She has two children who are going to school. She and her husband are farmers who grow vegetables and breed pigs. They have a monthly income of about 2,500,000 VND. With such a low income, they find it very difficult to raise their children. Mrs Thinh has participated in SEDA's microfinancing program since 2007 and has repaid punctually. She is very happy because she can save money each week. She is the group leader of a 6-member SEDA group loan. In this loan cycle, she would like to borrow 5,014,000 VND to buy 50 chickens. Hopefully, this plan will turn a profit so that her family may afford to buy more household appliances.

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.
