There are five people requesting this small loan, all residents of the province of Siem Reap. The members have selected Mrs. S., 45, to be the group leader. She is a good mother whose five children who are students pursuing individual studies and who still live in the family home. She works as a massage staff member in the hotel and gets a set salary of $80 a month to support her family's daily expenses. She is married to Mr. Chan, 38, who supports the family by fishing in and near Tunle Sap Lake. S. will use the loan to purchase a bicycle for her children so that they can ride it to their studies.

The other four borrowers are all local fisherwomen:

Mao C. is looking for a loan to repair her old house.
Nuor Y is asking for a loan to buy fishing tools. (Nuor Y was not available for photographing so her husband is pictured instead.)
Dung D. is applying for a loan to purchase a boat machine for her fishing business.
Lonh K. is hoping for a loan to refurbish and decorate her house.

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.
