Mrs. Tep Village Bank Group
Mrs. Tep is the village bank president who has been selected by the other members. She and her husband, Mr. Voeun, are farmers who own a 1-hectare plot of land where they can grow rice. They sell some part of the rice and the other part they use to support their family. He is a construction worker.
Now she has a problem because her field is far away from an irrigation system. So to improve this situation, Mrs. Tep is asking for a loan to buy a pump machine. She is the mother of two children who are studying in 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.
