Mrs. Phalla E. is 30 years old and is a village bank president, selected by sixteen people who make up a village bank loan located in Koun Chreae village, Kandal province. Each member will use their portion of the loan for various ways that can improve their businesses in the current year.

Mrs. Phalla E. is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice, which she sells to help support her family. Her husband, Mr. Chun Phorl, is a pig middleman who is able to earn a little money to support his family.

It is planting time on the farm and she needs to improve production, so she is applying for a loan to buy rice seed, and to hire a plow machine to plow her field.

This couple has three children, one of whom is enrolled in the local public school, while the others are too yoU. to work or study.

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.
