Nineteen people who live in the Svay Chuor Village in the Kandal Province form the village bank loan, and all the members will use the loan which they've obtained for different purposes. Mrs. Savy P. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She sells vegetables in the local market. Her husband, Mr. Noav Chhroeng, helps with her business. Since their business is doing well, they want to expand it by purchasing more vegetables to resell in order to earn more income to support their family. Mrs. Savy P. is a 34-year-old mother of four children, one of whom is a vegetable seller while two others are enrolled in the local school, and the remaining is too young to work or study. Mrs. Srey T. is not present, but her husband, instead, is shown in the picture with the village bank members.

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.
