Mrs. Chanthy Seoun Village Bank Group
In this Group: Chanthy, Kimhong, Rong, Sreipenh, Nhanh, Kann, Navy, Sokkhim, Srei, Long, Sinath, Sary
This village bank loan is made up of twelve members who live in Tep Archun village in Kandal province. Mrs. Chanthy S. is the village bank president who was selected by all the members. They all will use the loan for different purposes.

She and her husband, Mr. Sovan Chhoeurn, are farmers who own a plot of land to grow crops for supporting their family. However hard this family tries to work, they cannot earn enough income because their field has infertile soil.

Thus, in order to improve their crop production, Mrs. Chanthy S. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer, and with the rest of the loan she would like to buy corn seed. She is the mother of five children, one of whom is a farmer, while the others are attending a 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.
