Mrs. Ouk S., the 43-year-old village bank president, is a vegetable seller in the local market. Since her business is going well, she wants to expand it by purchasing more vegetables to resell. She hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions.

Her husband, Mr. Thy Chhum, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice. Mrs. Ouk S. has five children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory while the other three are attending the local school and the remaining child 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.
