Mrs. Srey S. was born in 1974. She is a farmer who owns a three-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell to support her family. At present, she has some problems because her field is infertile and it needs to be plowed. In order to improve production, Mrs. Srey S. is applying for a loan to buy fertilizer, rent a machine to plow her field, and, with the remainder of the loan, she plans to buy some piglets for breeding to start a new business. Her husband, Mr. Sam Art Den, is a duck breeder. She is the mother of three children who all attend the local public school. The day of the loan disbursement, Mrs. Srey S. was busy working in the field. Therefore, her husband, Mr. Sam Art Den, received the loan for her. The photo above is of Mrs. Srey S.'s husband.

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.
