This village bank loan consists of fourteen people who live in Prey Run village in Takeo province. All the members plan to use their loans for different purposes. Mrs. Pruch S. is the village bank president selected by all the members. She is a farmer who owns 1-hectare of land to cultivate rice to support her family. Her husband is a battery charger in the local village. She is the mother of two children, one of whom helps with the farming while the other attends the local public school. Although they work hard, the family earns little income. So they want to start a new business, but do not have enough money. Thus, Mrs. Pruch S. decided to ask for a loan to buy some piglets and pig food for breeding pigs. Mrs. Pruch S. is busy with her rice field so her husband came instead of her to take out the loan.

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.
