Mrs. Sareth Khein Village Bank Group
In this Group: Sareth, Kunthea, Ty, Yorn, Sopheap, Sam On, Sokhon, Naren, Lis, Youn, Sokhom, Tei, Seng, Khom, Okyday, Srey, Lach
The village bank loan consists of seventeen people and they all live in Veal Thom village in Kandal province. Mrs. Sareth K. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a fish seller in the local village. Since this business is going well, she wants to expand it so she is asking for a loan to buy more fish to re-sell. Her husband, Mr. Prak Ny, is a ferry driver who makes a small income to support the family. Mrs. Sareth K. is 38 years-old and the mother of four children, one of whom is a blacksmith while another one is a laborer. The third one is attending the local school and the youngest one is too young to work or study. Mr. Seng P. and Mr. Okyday C. did not come to take a loan but their wives did, so they are present 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.
