Fifteen people, who all live in Veal Kandal Village in Kandal Province, make up the Village Bank Group. Mrs. Sok K. is the Village Bank President. She selects the members of the group, but they will all use the loan for different purposes.

Mrs. Sok K. is a farmer who owns one hectare of land on which she cultivates rice to earn a living. On this plantation, she faces an obstacle because her field has infertile soil. Thus, she decided to request a loan to buy fertilizers that will support the rice field and make her crops more productive.

Mrs. Sok K. is a 63-year-old widow with a child who is employed in a garment factory.

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.
