Mr. Sareth K. and his wife, Mrs. Srey Sum, are farmers who own a three-hectare (7.5-acre) plot of land that they use to cultivate rice to sell to support their family. Mr. Sareth K. is also a vice village chief and his wife is a farm laborer.

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.
