Fourteen people who make up a village bank loan will each use their portion of the loan for different purposes to improve each family's standard of living. The borrowers have selected Mrs. Rem to be a village bank president.

Mrs. Rem is a congee seller who earns some profit to support her family while her husband, Mr. Bet, is a farmer who owns a 1-hectare plot of land where he grows rice. He sells part of the yield, and uses the rest of the rice to support his family. In the rice field, Mrs. Rem faces obstacles because her field is infertile soil and it has a lot of insects. To improve rice production, Mrs. Rem is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide. She is a mother of three children. One is a singer, while the others attend 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.
