Vanna Phet Group
In this Group: Vanna, Chandyamang, Dom, Math, Sreynin
The leader of this small group is Mrs Vanna P.. She is a state teacher in Soben Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. This job generates only $25 per month, which is not enough to support a family. Her husband, Mr Samorn P., is a farmer and rice middleman who buys rice to keep in stock and sell at a better price later in the year. Since Mrs Vanna P.'s husband's business has improved, Mrs Vanna P. wants to expand it. Thus, Mrs Vanna P. asked for a loan to purchase more rice to keep in stock. Mrs Vanna P. has two children, both of whom are attending the local school.

Previously, Mrs Vanna P. obtained a loan from AMK to start her husband's middleman business. She will share this loan with her group members.

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.
