Mr. Ben Chi Village Bank Group
Mr. Ben C. is a farmer who owns 2 hectares of land to cultivate rice to support his family. His wife is a wine and gasoline seller in the local village. He is the father of three children, two of whom are teachers, while the third attends the local public school. Mr. Ben C. is facing some obstacles because his rice field is infertile but he does not have enough money to improve it. Thus, Mr. Ben C. decided to request a loan to buy fertilizer. He would use the rest of the loan to start a new business and buy three piglets for breeding . Mr. Ben C. is busy with his rice field so his wife came instead of him to take out the loan .

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.
