Mrs. Uch S. is a 30-year-old married woman with two children. One is attending the local school while another one, age five, is not in school yet. Her husband, Mr. Borin Pov, is 31 years old and a motorbike taxi driver. Uch was selected to be the village’s bank president by its twenty-one members who are located in Ta Reab Doun Sa village, Kandal province.

Uch earns a living by selling sweets, balut eggs, and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Borin also helps in his wife’s business activities. With these occupations, they are able to make a monthly profit and raise the family’s standard of living.

In order to increase their income and improve the family’s life, Uch will use her portion of the loan from AMK to buy more drinks, balut eggs and sweets to enlarge her business activities.

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.
