This village bank loan consists of ten people who will use their portions of the loan for different purposes to improve their families' standard of living.

Mrs. Son, who was born in 1979, has been selected by all the members to be the village bank president. She is a fruit seller in the local market where she can earn some profit to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Tuo, is a recycling seller and a farmer who owns a small piece of land where he can grow rice. He sells some part of the rice and rest of the rice he uses to support his family. This couple supports three children who are attending local public school.

Since her business is getting on well, Mrs. Son wants to expand. So to improve her daily income, Mrs. Son is asking for a loan to buy more fruits to resell. With the rest of the loan, she is going to buy more recycling.

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.
