Mrs. Touch Thun Village Bank Group
Mrs. Touch T. is a farmer who owns a plot of land to cultivate rice that she sells to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Neng Bech, owns a rice mill at their home and also works as a construction worker.
This couple works hard, but they earn a very small income on which to support their family. So to improve their family's living conditions, Mrs. Touch T. is asking for a loan to buy some piglets to breed in order to start a new business. Through this activity, they hope to support their five children, all of whom attend local 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.
