In Chreae village, Takeo province, twelve people have made up a village bank loan, each planning to use their portion of the loan to improve their family living. Mrs. Am P. is a village bank president who has been selected by the other members. She is a farmer who owns a plot of land where she cultivates rice to sell to support her family. She currently has some problems with growing rice in her rice field. Therefore, to improve production, Mrs. Am P. is applying for a loan to buy rice seed. With the rest of the loan, she plans to buy piglets and chickens to start a new breeding business. Her husband, Mr. Rim U., is a construction worker. The couple support four children, all of whom are attending the local public school and helping with their parents’ businesses.

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.
