Mrs. Thav Chea Village Bank Group
In this Group: Thav, Polin, Sokheang, Mom, Saren, Navy, Sophea, Savun, Saroeurn, Orn, Vart
This village bank which consists of eleven members is located in Ta Nu village in Kandal Province. The members plan to use the loans they obtain for different purposes.

Mrs. Thav C. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a laborer who has been hired by the villagers. She owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice to earn a living. In this plantation, she faces an obstacle because she does not have enough money to cultivate rice in the field. Thus, Mrs. Thav C. decided to ask for a loan for this purpose. She is a 37-year-old widow and the mother of a child who is attending the local school.

Mr. Orn A. was not available when the photo was taken, so his wife appears on his behalf.

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.
