Mrs. Pou C. was born in 1981 and is a mother of two children who are attending school. She and her husband, Mr. Pheap Mut, live in Pou village in Takeo province. She and her husband are farmers who own a plot of land on which they cultivate rice to sell; moreover, she is a pig breeder while her husband owns a plow machine.

Pou was selected to be the village’s bank president by the other thirteen members of the bank who will each use their portion of the loan in different ways to improve their families’ lives. Pou’s current problem is that she does not have enough rice seed to grow. So to improve production, Mrs. Pou C. is seeking a loan to buy rice seed, gasoline and pig feed.

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.
