Mrs. Uk Village Bank Group
In this Group: Uk, Oeurn, Rath, Seam, Narin, Moeurn, Veth, Eng, Noun, Cheat, Sopheavy, Theary Phong
The twelve people who make up this village bank loan will each use their portion of the loan for different purposes to improve their families' living standards. Mrs. Uk is the village bank president who has been selected by the other members. She was born in 1964. She and her husband are farmers who own a half-hectare plot of land where she can grow rice. They sell part of the rice and with the rest of the rice they support their family. She is also a fruit seller at the local market.

Since her business is recently getting on well, she wants to expand, so Mrs. Uk would like to ask for a loan to buy more fruit for resale. She is a mother of four children, two of whom are laborers, while the other two are studying in 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.
