Ten people who live in Thlok village in Takeo province make up this village bank group loan. Mrs. N. C., who was born in 1959, is the village bank president who was selected by the other members. They will use their portion of the loan for different purposes.

She and her husband, Mr. Chies Chorn, are farmers who own a half-hectare plot of land in which to cultivate rice to sell to support their famiL.. Besides farming, they have a lot of free time. So, to improve this condition, Mrs. N. C. is seeking a loan to buy some piglets for breeding to start a new business.

She is a mother of five children, two of whom are employed in a bread shop, while another one is employed at a petroleum station and the others are attending 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.
