020304-Bac Son-Hoang Phu Group's story

Thu M. T. is a 39 year-old female living in the town of Hoang Hoa. Thu is the group leader of a six-member group loan offered by Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women. While each member of the group receives an individual loan, they all are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members if someone is delinquent or defaults. The official name of this borrowing group is 020304-Bac Son-Hoang Phu. Thu is married and has two school-aged children. To making a living, Thu operates a family member's fishing business. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from harvesting and selling wild-caught fish in the local community. Thu has been engaged in this business for over 19 years and earns approximately 2,000,000 VND a month. In 2008, Thu joined Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Thu has successfully repaid a previous loan of 3,079,800 VND from Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women. This previous loan was used to purchase additional fish to sell. She is now requesting a new loan of 6,000,000 VND, which will be used to repair a transport vehicle used in the business. The loan will be the third loan taken out by Thu from Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women. Thu plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve and expand the business.
