The village bank loan consists of thirteen people who all live in Veal Kandal village in Kandal province. Mrs. Sorth S. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a farmer who owns 1 hectar of land to cultivate rice. Now she faces an obstacle because she does not have enough money to hire workers to harvest the rice. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan for this purpose. Her husband, Mr. Auk Sam Ol, is a construction worker. This couple has eight children, three of whom are employed in a garment factory, two are construction workers, and the others are enrolled in the local school.

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.
