Her husband, Mr. Loch Khut, is a construction worker and aside from this he is also a fisherM.. Although they try to work hard with their careers, they earn little income and do not have enough to buy supplies for fishing.
Thus Mrs. Kosal P. decided to apply for a loan to buy fish nets and a boat to find fish.

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.
