The village bank loan, which consists of twenty one people, is located in Trapeang Chrey village in Takeo province. Mrs. Em P. is the village bank president who was selected by the members. They all will use the loan for different purposes.

Mrs. Em P. is 61 years old. She is a farmer who owns 2 hectares of land to cultivate rice to support her family. As a sideline, she is a Khmer cake maker. Although the family works hard with their rice field, they earn little income, so they want to start breeding pigs, but they do not have enough money to buy them. Thus, Mrs. Em P. decided to ask for a loan to buy some piglets and pig food. She is a mother of two children - one is a laborer in a garment factory while the other is a farmer.

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.
