Mrs. Choen Chhay Village Bank Group
Mrs. Choen C. and her husband, Mr. T. Yeung, are farmers who own a plot of land for cultivating rice to support their family. Through this activity, the couple supports four children. One of their children works in a garment factory, and another child sells sugarcane juice. Their other children are enrolled in local public school. In their rice field, they have some problems: the rice field is infertile, and they do not have enough rice seed. Thus, in order to improve productivity, Mrs. Choen C. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and rice seed.

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.
