Mrs. Soen P. is the village bank president for a 13-member group loan offered by Kiva partner, AMK. The group members are located in Chey Chumneah village in Kandal province and will use their loans to purchase equipment, supplies and other items for different purposes.

Mrs. Soen P. and her husband, Kol Phon, are farmers who rent a 1.5-hectare field for farming. They now face a problem because they do not have enough money to support their farm. Therefore, Mrs. Soen P. has decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide to support her crops. The couple has four children – two are seamstresses in a garment factory, one is a farmer, while the other is a student and helps in the family's farming business.

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.
