05.01.28 Điện Biên Thanh Hóa Group
In this Group: Lan, Tình, Hòa
Mrs. Lan, a 50-year-old married mother of two, lives with one dependent in Thanh Hoa, an urban town in Thanh Hoa Province. The leader of a three-member group, the 28 Điện Biên solidarity group, Lan has operated a food stall/restaurant selling vegetables for five years. Her main hardship is a lack of capital.

In 2009, Lan joined Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women to improve her business. Having repaid three previous loans, she is requesting a new loan to purchase vegetables to resell. With her profit, Lan hopes for success in her business, academic success for her children, and the opportunity to remodel her house.

About Thanh Hoa Microfinance Institution Limited Liability (Thanh Hoa MFI)

Thanh Hoa MFI works to provide credit to women and their families in the central Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa, one of the poorest regions of the country. The institution's target clients are poor and low-income women who have the ability to work but lack the capital. Accordingly, Thanh Hoa MFI prioritizes single mothers, low-income women with children who have dropped out of primary school, and Viet Nam’s poorest women who cannot access any formal financial services.

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.
