Mrs. Chan S. is the village bank president for eight people who all live in Svay Ming village in Kandal province. Mrs. Chan S. is 48 years old and is a widow with three children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while the other is attending the local school. Since her children's workplace is far from their house, they pay a lot of money for a motorbike taxi. Thus, Mrs. Chan S. decided to ask for a loan to add to her savings to buy a motorbike for her children to use to go to work and she hopes to reduce her family expenses in this way.

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.
