Mrs. Chroeun Seng Village Bank Group
Mrs. Chroeun S. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a farmer who owns a small 1.5-hectare (3.75-acre) piece of land on which she cultivates rice to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Saret Phor, is a motorbike taxi driver.
In the rice field, they have a problem because it is time to farm but they do not have enough money to grow their crop. Hence, Mrs. Chroeun S. decided to apply for a loan to grow rice during this growing season.
This couple has four children, three of whom are attending the local public school, while the other is too young to go to school or 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.
