Currently, she and her husband have jobs as local cultivators. In additionally, they are also fishing in and around Tunle Sap Lake which is an important place for fish to be found. The couple now lives with four children who are still single: two of them are employed working as massage staff in the hotel.
Recently, the family's investment is not going well because their equipment frequently breaks so that they can't catch as many fish as before. To solve the matter, K. would like a loan to purchase additional equipment for fishing activities.
The others borrowers are all people who live in Siem Reap Province. They are:

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.
