Mrs. Mut Nget Village Bank Group
Mrs. Mut N. is a farmer who owns a 1.5-hectare plot of land to grow rice to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Roeung Seng, is a door-to-door toy seller. With this business, he is able to earn some money to support his family.

This couple supports five children, one is a laborer and the others are students at the local public 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.
