Fifteen members are part of the village bank loan in Andoung Svay Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. Mrs. Hem C., 48 years old, is the village bank president. She is a Khmer cake maker who earns a small income to support her family. Since this business is going well with a steady stream of customers, she would like to expand it. She has asked for a loan to buy sticky rice to make more Khmer cake to meet her customers' demands. Her husband, Mr. Srey Ched, is a construction worker who earns less than $2 per day to support his family. They have four children: two sell purified water; one is a construction worker; the youngest is attending the 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.
