This village bank loan is comprised of fifteen people who will each use their portion of the loan for different purposes to improve their standard of living. The village bank president is Sarong, who was selected by the group members.

Sarong was born in 1973. She is a widow with four children, two of whom are seamstresses in garment factories while the others are studying in the local public school. Although the family works hard, it is difficult to earn enough to provide for the family. Sarong is a farmer who owns a small piece of land where she grows rice to sell and support her family. She is requesting a loan to add to her savings and buy a breeding cow to start a new business.

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.
