This village loan consists of thirteen people located in Daeum Rues village, Kandal province. Mrs. Sorn Y. is 51 years old and is the village bank president selected by the members, who will use their portions of the loan to support their different purposes.

Mrs. Sorn Y. is a widow with two children, who are seamstresses in the garment factory. She farms rice on a rented plot of land and works very hard to support the family. Since she does not have enough money to support the farm, she decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide to cultivate rice.

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.
