This group loan is being requested by five people who live in Pongro village, Takeo province. They will each use a portion of their loan to support their varied businesses. Mrs. Chorn S. is a group leader who is 35 years old, and was selected by the other members. She is a farmer and owns a 2.5 hectare plot of land where she cultivates rice to sell. She is also a pig breeder. Her husband, Mr. Ret Neak, owns a mill in the local village. Now she has some problems because her soil in her fields is infertile. So to improve production of rice, Mrs. Chorn S. is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer, and she will use the rest of the loan to buy piglets for breeding. She is a mother of three children, two of whom are seamstresses in garment factory and one of whom is in 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.
