She and her husband, Mr. Srorn Sreng, are farmers who own a small piece of land. To support their family they grow crops to sell. On their land they have some problems because the soil is infertile, far from irrigation, and it has a lot of insects. Thus, in order to improve the family's living conditions, Mrs. Treob H. decided to seek a loan to buy fertilizers, fuel and pesticide to increase crop production this year. Through their farming this couple supports three children, one of whom is a worker in a garment factory, another is attending the local public school and the last is too young to go to school or to work.

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.
