In this Group: Chamroeun, Pet, Nuon, Kruch, Horn, Khim, Yan, Nget, Hort
Nine members form this village loan; the members are from the Traeuy Troeng village in the Kandal province. This village loan selected Mrs. Chamroeun M., 51, as the village bank president. Each member of this village will use their portions of the loan to support their different purposes.

Mrs. Chamroeun M. is a farmer who owns two-hectares of rice fields to cultivate rice for a living. She does not have enough money to cultivate her farming. So she decided to ask for a loan to buy rice seed, fertilizer and gasoline to grow rice. Her husband, Mr. Chou Au, 53 years old, works as ice cream seller who is able to earn a little income to support his family.

They have seven children, one who is an iron welder, two are seamstresses in the garment factory, and the others are students who also help their mother in farming.

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.
