In Pong Tuek village, Takeo province, live 17 people who make up a village-bank loan. Mrs. Chin K. is the village bank president. She has been selected by the other members, who will use their portion of the loan for different purposes to improve their families' living conditions.

She is a farmer who owns a half-hectare plot of land in which to grow rice to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Yen Im, is a farming-supplies producer who can earn some money to support his family. Although they try to work hard, they earn little money. So to improve their family's living, Mrs. Chin K. is requesting a loan to buy some piglets for breeding to start a new business.

She is a mother of two children who are both too young to work or study.

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.
