He is the father of a child who helps to do the farming. No matter how hard they try to work, they cannot earn enough income because their field has infertile soil and it's time to plow. Thus, Mr. Ban M. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and rice seed. With the rest of the loan, he would like to hire some farmers to plow the rice field.

Mr. Ban M. is village bank president who has been selected by all the members. Nineteen people are in this village bank, who all live in Phnum Lonteah village in TaK. province. They will use the loan for different purposes.

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.
