Mrs. Seakleng Hok Village Bank Group
Mrs. Seakleng H. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She and her husband, Mr. Savea Pat, are farmers who own five hectares of land and they work as laborers when they have free time. Currently, it is the growing season but Mrs. Seakleng H. does not have enough money for farming. Therefore, she decided to request a third loan in order to buy rice seed and hire a laborer to plow the field. The couple has four children, three of whom are attending the local school and the youngest of whom is too young to go to school or work.

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.
