This village bank which consists of sixteen members is located in Preak Phum village in Kandal province, and they plan to use the loan which they obtained for different purposes. Mrs. Meng K. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She sells bananas. Aside from this business, she is a farmer who owns a plot of land where she cultivates both rice and vegetables.

In this plantation, she faces an obstacle because her field is infertile. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan to purchase fertilizer to amend the field to make her crops more productive. She would use the rest of the loan to buy piglets to start breeding pigs. Her husband, Mr. Ly Kruy, is a security guard.

Mrs. Meng K. is a 34-year-old mother with five children; four children are attending the local school while the youngest one is too young to work or study.

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.
