Mrs. Thuong, born in 1968, and her husband are farmers. They own a plot of land and grow corn and rice to make a living. They do not have enough money for their farm. Thus, Thuong would like to ask for a loan to buy gasoline and fertilizers for growing crops. Aside from farming, they also earn a living by making coffee to sell. This couple has four children: one is a teacher, one is a farmer, one is attending a local school, and the youngest one is 4 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.
