Sixteen people living in Tareap Doun village in Kandal province comprise this village bank loan. They will use the loan for various purposes.

Mrs. Sokhom C. is the 41-year-old village bank president. She is a fish seller in the local market. Her husband, Mr. Orn davy, is a fisherman. Although they try to work hard, they still earn less income than they need to support their family. Thus, Mrs. Sokhom C. decided to ask for a loan to buy more fish from other people to resell and earn more profits. She has three children who are attending the local school.

Mrs. Chanroen S. did not come in perS. to take a loan but her husband was there, so he is presented in the picture instead.

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.
