Twenty people in Ta Phem village in Takeo province are making up this village bank loan. The members will use their portion of the loan in varied ways to support their families. Mrs. Koem L. has been selected to be the village bank president by the other members.

Mrs. Koem L. and her husband, Mr. Muon Moeun, are farmers who own a 1-hectare plot of land to grow rice to sell to support their family. He is also a construction worker. At the present, Mrs. Loem L. wants to start a new business breeding pigs, but she does not have enough money to support this venture. To achieve her purpose, she is asking for a loan to buy some piglets and pig food to start this new business.

Mrs. Koem L. has one child who is just 9 months old. Mr. Nim C. is a guarantor, so he is present in the picture. All the members are shown in the picture, although four are blocked from view.

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.
