In Pou Ta village in Kandal province, this is a village bank loan consisting of thirteen people. They will each use the loan for a different purpose.

Mrs. Sokheoun L. is the village bank leader who has been selected by all the members. She is a farmer who owns a plot of land on which she cultivates rice to support her family.

Her husband, Mr. Sophorn Laut, is a plow laborer in the local village. In this activity, they have a problem because their oxen are plowing a lot of places, and the oxen do not find it easy to relax because they do not have a place for their oxen. Thus, Mrs. Sokheoun L. decided to ask for a loan to build a stall for breeding oxen.

Mrs. Sokheoun L. is the mother of three children, two of whom are attending the local public school and the other is too young to work or go to 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.
