Twenty members form this village loan. They are located in Akreiy Ksatr village in Kandal province. This loan group selected 66-year-old Mr. Sum M. as the village bank president. The members of this village will use their portions of the loan to support their different purposes.

Mr. Sum M. and his wife, Mrs. Sokhon, are farmers who own a piece of land that they use to cultivate citronella grass. They do not have enough money to cultivate it. So, Mr. Sum M. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizers and pesticides. Besides farming, Mr. Sum M. is also a horse cart driver.
This couple has two children who are the farmers.

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.
