In Manong Leu village in Prey Veng province, ten people are seeking a village bank loan. Mrs. Chaem P. is the group leader, selected by the other members. Each member will use a portion of the loan for different purposes. Mrs. Chaem P. breeds pigs to earn money to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Ken Some, is a farmer who owns a two-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell in order to support his family. Now she has some problems because the soil in her husband’s field is infertile, and it is far away from an irrigation system. To improve production, Mrs. Chaem P. is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and gasoline. She is the mother of two children, one of whom is a waiter. The other is attending a 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.
