Mr. Phon P., 38, is a motorcycle taxi driver. He has been driving a taxi since 2004 and can earn approximately $2.33 per day. His wife, Mrs. Eoeun Met, 37, buys raw materials and makes Khmer traditional baskets to sell from her house. Phon has four children, all of whom go to school and also help with their mother's business. Phon faces difficulty with his old motorcycle, which is often broken, depriving him of customers and thus affecting his income. He needs a new motorcycle to improve his income, but he lacks the money to carry out this plan. Hence, he has requested a loan of $200 to purchase a secondhand motorcycle to replace the old one.

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.
