This village bank which consists of eleven people is located in Pump Edth village in Takeo province. These members will each use the loan which they obtain for a different purpose.

Mrs. Sopheap O. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a farmer who owns a 2-hectare (5-acre) field on which she cultivates rice to earn a living.

In this farming, Mrs. Sopheap O. now faces a small problE. because she does not have enough money to buy fertilizer to support the field to make her crop more productive. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan for this purpose and she would use the rest of the loan to buy pesticides and to hire a water pump to water her crops.

Mrs. Sopheap O. is the mother of five children, three of whom are employed in a garment factory while the others are attending the local school. Her husband, Mr. D. Sokhom, is a bed maker in the local village.

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.
