Sixteen people make up this village bank loan. Mrs. Phorn is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. Each member’s portion of the loan will be used for different purposes in order to improve their family’s standard of living.

Mrs. Phorn is a chicken breeder and a farmer who owns a plot of land where she can grow rice for her own family. Her husband, Mr. Bun Ly, is a construction worker and an iron welder. Since her husband’s business is going well, he wants to expand. So, Mrs. Phorn is applying for a loan to buy more iron welding machinery.

She was born in 1983. This couple has two children who are too young to work or study.

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.
