This village bank consists of twenty-one members who are located in Kandal Leu Village in Kandal Province, Cambodia.

Mrs. Chhay K. has been selected by the members to be the village bank president. She owns a small store where she sells dinnerware (plates, glasses, chopsticks…etc). Her business is going well and she wants to expand it, so she has decided to ask for a loan to buy more dinnerware to resell to her customers.

Her husband, Mr. Chum Routha, has a small business in which he uses electricity to charge customers' batteries.

Mrs. Chhay K. is 34 years old and the mother of three children, a 3-year-old, and two children who attend 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.
