Eighteen people in Preak Thom Village, Cambodia, comprise one village bank. Mrs. Savey C. is the village bank president. She sells shells in the local village. Her husband, Mr. Sam Ol Oeurk, is a motorbike-taxi driver. Mrs. Savey C. has seven children, six of whom attend a local school; the other is too young to work or study.

Previously, Mrs. Savey C. obtained a loan to buy a motorbike to start Mr. Sam Ol Oeurk’s motor-taxi business. The business now faces a small problem, because the motorbike needs to be repaired, but they do not have enough money to fix it. Thus, his wife, Mrs. Savey C., decided to take a loan to repair the motorbike. With the rest of money, she will buy more shells to re-sell them.

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.
