Mr. Pich S. O., 38, is the village bank president who was selected by the seventeen people who make up this village bank group. This loan will help the members to improve their businesses which are located in Thnal Bat village in Takeo province.

He and his wife, Mrs. Thoeun Chhet, are farmers who own a 1.95-hectare plot of land on which they cultivate rice to sell to support their family. He is also a traditional musician who is able to earn some money in this way to support his family. His problem is that his field contains infertile soil, and it has a lot of insects. So, to improve his production of rice, Mr. Pich S. O. is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer, insecticide, and rice seed.

He is a father of four children, three of whom are attending school, while the youngest one is five years old.

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.
