These sixteen people are villagers in Chambak Tuem village in Takeo province and they make up this village bank loan. Mrs. N. S., who is 50 years old, is the village bank president, selected by the other members. The members will use their portion of their loan in varied ways.

Mrs. N. S. is a farmer who owns a plot of land that she uses to cultivate rice to sell to support her family living. Moreover, she also finds firewood to sell.

Mrs. N. S.’s problem is that her field has infertile soil and also has a lot of insects. So, to improve production, she is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide. With the rest of the loan she will buy three piglets to raise to start a new business.

Mrs. N. S. is a widow with a child who is a fruit seller.

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.
