Mrs. Sopha S. is a farmer who owns a plot of land to grow brown sapote and vegetables, which she sells to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Yoeurn Y., is a construction worker. In growing brown sapote, Mrs. Sopha S. has a problem because the field has a lot of insects and she does not have enough money to address this problem. Therefore, she has decided to ask for loan to buy pesticide to protect her field. With the rest of the loan she would like to build a toilet for personal use. Mrs. Sopha S. is a mother of five children – one is a seamstress in a garment factory while the others attend the local public school.

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.
