The village bank loan which consists of seventeen people is located in Serei Duoch village in Takeo province. Mr. Khom T. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. He is a cow middleman. His wife, Mrs. Uoch Sung, is a farmer who owns 2-hectar field of land to cultivate rice. In this plantation, she does not have enough money to expend on the rice field. Thus, Mr. Khom T. decided to ask for a loan to expend for plowing and to buy fertilizer to support the field. He is 37 years old and the father of four children, two of whom are enrolled in the local school while the others are 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.
