This village bank loan consists of fifteen people. Each member’s portion of the loan will be used for different purposes in order to improve their own family's standard of living. Mr. Heang is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. He was born in 1965. He is a farmer who owns a small piece of land where he grows rice to support his own family and he is a village chief. His wife is a pig breeder and a weaver. Since his wife’s business is going well, he wants it to expand. So, Mr. Heang is seeking a loan to buy more silk. He is the father of two children. They are studying at 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.
