Mrs. Mai S. is the village bank loan group president who has been selected by the members. She is a farmer who owns a small plot of land and cultivates rice to earn for living. Her husband, Mr. S. Some, is a laborer who earns a small income. Together, they support the family. Mrs. Mai S. is 57 years old and the mother of two children who are all employed.

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.
