Fourteen people who all live in Chheu Teal village in Takeo province comprise the village bank loan. Mrs. CH. Sy T. is the village bank president selected by the members. She is a silk weaver in the local village. Since this business is going well, she wants to expand it. So she decided to ask for a loan to buy more silks to weave. She hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions with the loan. Her husband, Mr. Chum ChH., owns a small piece of land (0.2 hectare) to cultivate rice. Mrs. CH. Sy T. is 29 years old and the mother of two children, one of whom attends the local school and one is too young to work or study.

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.
