Sophorn Iy Group
In this Group: Sophorn, Lon, Yim, Brenh
The group leader in this small group is Mrs Sophorn I. who lives in Soben (Dream) Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. She is currently in the business of fish selling in the local market. Since Mrs Sophorn I.’s business has improved, she would like to expand it. Unfortunately, Mrs Sophorn I. does not have enough money to purchase more fish to sell to the market. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan to buy fish for this purpose. Her husband, Mr Sophy Veng, is a state teacher who can generate a small salary to support the family. Mrs Sophorn I. is 46 and the mother of two children, both of whom are attending the local school.

Mrs Sophorn I. will share this loan with the other members of her group.

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.
