Mrs. Ny S. is the village bank president who has been selected by all the members. She owns a general store in the local village to earn money to support her family. Since her business is going well she wants to expand it, but she does not have enough money. Thus, Mrs. Ny S. is asking for a loan to buy more groceries to resell. Her husband, Mr. Chea S., is a farmer who owns a plot of land to grow rice on to support his family. They have three children, one of whom is a seamstress in a garment factory, while another is a laborer, and the third is attending public 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.
