Mrs. Yam Soeung Group
In this Group: Yam, Pheourng, Vorn, Muth, Moeurn
Mrs. Yam S. was selected by fellow members to be the group leader of five people requesting a loan in Tumnob Leu Village in Kampong Cham Province. Mrs. Yam S. is 42 years old, and the mother of seven children. Two of her children are employed in a garment factory; another four attend the local school; and her youngest child is too young for work or study. Mrs. Yam S. is a recycling collector who gathers or buys empty bottles, cans, and plastics, and then resells them to a recycling factory. Her business is going well, and she would like to expand it. Her husband, Mr. Eing Chea, owns a small piece of land on which he cultivates rice.

All the members in her group loan have end-of-term loans (EoT), which means they are not required to pay any principal on the loan until the very end of the loan term. This type of loan is AMK’s main product because it is the most beneficial to Cambodia’s poor. It 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, and almost all of AMK’s clients make their payments on time. AMK 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.
