Mrs. Ban Sok's Village Bank Group
In this Group: Ban, Sum, Yin, Yeang, Prum, Ron, Pho, Pon, Yean, Mang, Path, Kong, Yuth, Yean
Fourteen people in Chrolong Village in Kampong Chhnang Province form a village bank [solidarity group]. The group members will use the loan in different ways. Mrs. Ban S. is the village bank president, and she raises three pigs and four cows. Because her animals are growing very fast now and she does not have enough money to purchase more food to feed them, Mrs. Ban S. decided to ask for a loan. Her husband, Mr. Kong Teng, helps his wife with the business. Mrs. Ban S. is a 34-year-old woman without any children.

Mrs. Yin G. L. did not come to receive her loan. Her husband came for her instead, so he is presented in the picture.

This is a village bank loan consisting of mainly end-of-term loans. Ten members have end-of-term loans, and the rest have monthly payment loans. These members are not required to pay any principal on the loan until the very end of the loan term. End-of-term (EoT) loans are AMK's main product because they are the most beneficial to Cambodia's poor. The product allows them to repay portions of the principal whenever they are financially able to do so. Most clients start to make payments many months before the end of the loan term. Almost all of AMK's clients make their payments on time. AMK [Kiva’s Field Partner] has a delinquency rate of only 0.09% and AMK has a default rate of 0% on Kiva.

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.
