Sokhorn's Group
In this Group: Sokhorn, Ly, Heang, Sareoun
Four people made up a group loan located in Boeng Kandal village in Kandal province. Mrs. Sokhorn S. is the group leader, selected by the other members who will each use a small piece of the loan for a different purpose. She is a farmer who owns a 1.2-hectare plot of land to grow crops to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Kheang Peng, is a fisherman. Now she has a problem because her husband’s fishing boat is broken. So to improve this condition, Mrs. Sokhorn S. is applying for a loan to fix the fishing boat. She is a mother of four children. One of her children helps her to do farming and the others are studying in the local public school. The day of the loan disbursement Mrs. Sokhorn S. was busy working in the field. Instead, her husband, Mr. Kheang Peng, received the loan for her. The photo above is of Mrs. Sokhorn S.'s husband.

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.
