In this Group: Thoeun, Choem, Vuttha
Mrs. Thoeun B. is 34 years old and breeds pigs for a living. She has a full year of experience raising the pigs at her home. Thoeun is married to Mr. Preng Koem, 34, a fisherman, and they have three children, all of whom live at home and attend school. Thoeun talked with her husband about their lack of capitals to expand the business, and she decided to ask for a $400 loan to purchase more piglets to breed. The loan will help grow their business and increase their income to better meet the family's living expenses.

Thoeun is one the leader of a group of three women sharing the loan. The other two are:

1. Mrs. Choem N., 25, a fish seller. She depends on her husband to do the fishing, while she sells the fish in the market. Choem requests a loan of $300 to purchase fishing tools, such as nets and traps, for her husband's business.

2. Mrs. Vuttha S., 38, also a fish seller. She purchases fish from a supplier and sells them in the market. Vuttha seeks a loan of $300 to stock fish for resale.

The women all live in Sarikakao Commune, Kandal Province.

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.
