Mrs. Kosal Penh Village Bank Group
In this Group: Kosal, Chantha, Chanthy, Reth, Savoeurn, Sambo, Kemson, Saran, Srey Orn, Mao, Sarem, Sokhom, Ren, Samoeun
The village bank, which consists of fourteen members, is located in Chheu Teal village in Kandal province and they plan to use the loan which they obtained for different purposes. Mrs. Kosal P. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a fishwife.

Her husband, Mr. Khut Louch, is a fisherman who is saving the money to support his family. Although he tries to work hard he still earns less income to support his family living because he has few fishnets and others tools for his fishing. Thus, Mrs. Kosal P. decided to ask for a loan to buy more fishnets and others tools for her husband’s fishing.

She is 40 years old and the mother of four children, three of whom are employed in a garment factory while the other is attending the local school. Mrs. Reth C. does not come to take a loan but her husband does, so he is presented in the picture instead her.

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.
