Mrs. Phors M. is a pig breeder. She is 25 years old and the mother of two children who are too young to work or study. Her husband, Mr. Reth Chhoen, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice. Although this couple tries to work hard, they still do not earn enough income to support their family.

She hopes to increase her income and improve her family's standard of living with this loan.

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.
