Mrs. Koem Ly K. is 40 years old and she is a village-bank president. This village-bank loan consists of eight people who all live in Ang Roveay village in the Takeo province. All of the members will use the loan for different purposes. Mrs. Koem Ly Kouy is the mother of five children, two of whom are silk weavers while the other three are students in the local school.

Mrs. Koem Ly Kouy is a farmer who owns a small piece of land in which to cultivate rice. Aside from her plantation, she is a silk weaver. Since this business is going well, she wants to expand it so she decided to ask for a loan to buy silks to weave. Her husband, Mr. Un Oeun, is a traditional singer who is invited to sing in wedding ceremonies and parties. All the members are shown in the picture but some of them are blocked.

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.
