Mrs. Siem T. is nineteen years old, married and has a child who is just a year old. Her husband, Mr. Nhien Long, 26 years old, is an agri-machine driver. They live in K'am Samnar Leu village, Kandal province.

Eight people have formed a village bank and selected Siem T. as the village bank loan president. The members of this village will use their portions of the loan to support their different purposes.

Siem is a farmer who owns a 1-hectare rice field. Her husband also works on the farm. Siem, however, does not have enough money to grow her rice. So she has decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and gasoline.

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.
