She hopes she can gather more fish to support her family. Mrs. Vy Y. is a 48-year-old widow with 10 children, five of whom are working in a garment factory while the others are attending the local school and also help their mother when they have free time.

All the members in this village bank are seeking end-of-term (EoT) loans so they are not required to pay any principal on the loan until the very end of the loan term. EoT loans are AMK's main product because it is the most beneficial to Cambodia's poor. It allows thE. to repay portions of the principal whenever they are financially able to. Most clients start to make payments many months before the end of the loan term. Almost all of AMK's clients make their payments on time.

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.
