This village bank loan group consists of twenty-one people who live in Peam Prachum Village in Kandal Province. Mrs. Sokhom I. was selected by the members to be the village bank president. She is a farmer. She owns a piece of land on which she grows rice and vegetables. She has a problem because she does not have rice seed to sow on the field. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan to buy rice seed. She will use the rest of loan to buy a sewing machine for her child. Mrs. Sokhom I. is a 48-year-old widow. She has two children who are employed in a garment factory.

Six members in this group loans have taken end-of-term (EoT) loans and the rest have monthly-payment loans. Borrowers with EoT loans are not required to pay any principal on the loan until the very end of the loan term. End-of-term loans are AMK’s main product because they are the most beneficial to Cambodia’s poor. It allows them to repay portions of the principal whenever they are financially able. Most clients start to make payments many months before the end of the loan term. Almost all of AMK’s clients make their payments on time. AMK has a delinquency rate of only 0.09% and AMK has a default rate of 0% on Kiva.

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.
