This village bank loan has thirteen borrowers who live in Prey Khcheay village in Takeo province. Mrs. Khien H., who was bO. in 1963, became a village bank president when she was selected by the other members of the group. They will use their portion of the loan for different purposes.

Khien is a farmer who owns a 1.5-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice that she sells to support her family. She is also a pig breeder. Her problem is that her pigs are too small to sell, but she does not have money to support the pigs' growth. To improve this condition, Mrs. Khien H. is seeking a loan to buy pig food. With the rest of the loan, she plans to buy fertilizer and hire farm laborers. Her husband, Mr. Him Nhoem, is a driver. She has four children who all are studying 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.
