Sok Sam Group
In this Group: Sok, Khom, Ra, Chon, Nov
Mrs. S. S., a farmer, is the leader of this group. She is 49 and married with two children, both of whom are enrolled in state school. In December 2007, one of the children got typhoid which cost $100 to cure. Her husband, Mr. Salim L., is a farmer who also generates an income from palm trees. Now living in a small house in Chrok Kov village in Kampong Chhnang Province, Mrs. S. S. and her family are having difficulty during the rainy season because of a bad roof. She is therefore seeking a loan to build a new house in the village. Previously, she obtained $250 from Acleda Bank to buy fertilizer and rice seeds to cultivate on her rice field.

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.
