Twelve people make up this village bank loan, all of whom are villagers in Tep Archun village in Kandal province. Mrs. Chheng K. is the village bank president, selected by all the members. Each member will use their loan for a different purpose.

Mrs. Chheng K. is a mother of four children, two of whom are construction laborers while the others attend a local public school. She is a farmer who owns one-hectare of land to grow rice and crops to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Chorn Chory, is a construction worker. On her the farm, Mrs. Chheng K. has some problems because her field is infertile and is also far from an irrigation system. Thus, in order to improve her rice production, she has decided to apply for a loan to buy fertilizer and gasoline. With the rest of the loan, she wants to hire farmers to plow her field.

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.
