Sixteen people in the Krang Ta Chan village in the Takeo province are requesting a group loan. Mrs. Rim M. is the village bank president. She is a rice farmer, and owns 0.5-hectare, and also breeds pigs. This business is going well, so she is requesting a loan to buy more piglets for breeding. Her husband, Mr. U. Voeurn, is a construction worker who earns a small income to support his family.

Mrs. Rim M. is 43 years old and the mother of six children; two children help their mother in the pig-breeding business; three children attend the local school; and the youngest one is 5 years old.

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.
