Mr. Sophal U. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. He and his wife, Mrs. B. Sary, are farmers who own a plot of land where they grow vegetables.

In their growing, they face an obstacle because their field is far from the irrigation system.

He is 45 years old and the father of six children, one of whom is a construction worker while two others are farmers; two are enrolled in the local school and the remaining one is too young to work or study.

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.
