This village bank loan consists of fifteen people located in Chong Kaoh-I village, Kandal province. They have selected Mrs. Koeun C. as the village bank president. The members will use their portion of the loan in varied ways.

Mrs. Koeun C., who is 45 years old, is a congee (a type of rice porridge) seller in the local village while her husband, Mr. Him S., is a farmer who owns a plot of land where he grows crops to sell to support his family.

But now, Mrs. Koeun C. has some problems because her husband’s field is infertile and it has a lot of insects. So, to improve production, she is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide.

Mrs. Koeun C. is the mother of two children, one of whom is helping his father to farm, while the other is attending 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.
