Her husband, Mr. Him Vannak, earns a small income to support his family by selling bread in the local village. Since this business is going well, her husband would like to start selling bread door-to-door. For this reason, Mrs. Mork C. is requesting a loan to add to her savings in order to buy a motorcycle for her husband's business. With the rest of the loan, she plans to buy more bread so as to enlarge her husband's business.
Mrs. Mork C. is a stay-at-home mother who prepares the family meals and maintains the household. This couple has four children: two are employed as seamstresses in the garment factory, and the other two attend the local 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.
