This village bank, which consists of twenty-four members, is located in Phum Dabprambei village in Kampong Cham province. Each bank member plans to use their share of the loan for different purposes.

Mr. Choeun K., the village bank president, was selected by the members. He is a laborer who earns a small income that supports his family. His wife, Mrs. Mao Yath, is a pig breeder. Since her breeding business is going well, she wants to expand it.

Thus, Mr. Choeun K. has decided to ask for a loan to buy more piglets for his wife's breeding business. He hopes to increase his income and improve his living conditions by selling the pigs that they buy with the loan. He is 41 years old and the father of three children who are enrolled in the local 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.
