Mrs. Sang Chum Village Bank Group
In this Group: Sang, Srey, Sorng, Sao, Ny, Nan, Phannara, Orn, Savin, Vet, Nhen, Sot, Pov
Thirteen people who live in PO. village in Takeo province make up the village bank loan. The borrowers will use the loan for different purposes. Mrs. Sang C. is the village bank president. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate vegetables. Her husband, Mr. Saor Sek, gathers palm juice to produce palm sugar. Since these two businesses can make only a small income, Mrs. Sang C. decided to ask for a loan to buy piglets to start a pig-breeding business. Mrs. Sang C. has four children: one is a palm juice collector, another is a firewood cutter and the other two are students.

Eleven members of this group have end-of-term loans and the rest have monthly payment loans. They are not required to pay any principal on the loan until the very end of the loan term. End-of-term loans are AMK’s main product because these are the most beneficial to Cambodia’s poor. Such loans allow the borrowers to repay portions of the principal whenever they are financially able to. Most clients start to make payments many months before the end of the loan term. Almost all of AMK’s clients make their payments on time. AMK has a delinquency rate of only 0.09% and AMK has a default rate of 0% on Kiva.

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.
