Mrs. Touch Sokea Village Bank Group
In this Group: Touch, Bun, Perng, Pol, Long, Haem, Chom, Ham, Kang, Lina, Long, Long, Lem, Suon
In Dei Kraham village, Takeo province, fourteen people have selected Mrs. T. S. to be a village bank president. All the members of this group loan will use their portion in various ways to improve their families' standard of living.

Mrs. T. S. is a farmer who owns a small piece of land where she grows rice, not to sell, but to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Sarom Moav, is a motorcycle taxi driver in Phnom Penh city. Although they try to work hard, they can only earn a small income. Mrs. T. S. would, therefore, like to ask for a loan to buy some piglets to breed to start a new business. She is the mother of five children: one is a seamstress in a garment factory while the others attend the local public 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.
