Mrs. Chok Saveth Village Bank Group
She is a door-to-door Khmer cheese and fish sauce seller, earning some profit to support her family. Her husband is a farmer who owns a more than 2-hectare plot of land to grow rice to sell to support the family and he is a cow middleman. Since her business is going well, she wants to expand.
To improve her daily income, Mrs. Chok S. is asking for a loan to buy more Khmer cheese to sell and use the rest of the loan to buy a cow to resell. She has two children, one of whom is enrolled in the local public school while the youngest one is 3 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.
