This village bank loan, which consists of twelve people, is located in Tradak Pong village in Takeo province. Mrs. Leap C. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members, and each of them will use the loan for a different purpose.

Leap is a farmer who owns 3-hectares of land where she cultivates rice to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Sok Chan, is a construction worker.

Mrs. Leap C. faces a problem with her rice field because it has infertile soil, but she doesn't have enough money to support it. So she decided to request a loan to purchase fertilizers and additional pesticides. She is the mother of three children, two of whom are construction workers, while the third is studying in the local public 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.
