Mrs. Keak P., age 42, was selected as village bank president by the members of this village loan. They are all located in Ta Nu village, Kandal province. Each member of this village loan will use their portion of the loan for different purposes.

Mrs. Keak P. is a grocery seller in the local village, while her husband, Mr. Sboang Rithy, 42, works as a police officer. With both of their occupations, they are able to earn a small income to support the family. In order to increase their income to improve the family's living, and in order to expand the grocery business, Mrs. Keak P. decided to ask for a loan to buy more groceries to sell. This couple has five children: three are seamstresses in a garment factory, and the other two are 5 and 1 and are not yet in 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.
