Mrs. Rorn Nhin Village Bank Group
In this Group: Rorn, Srey, Tha, Rin, Touch, Khum, Thoeun, Thorn, Rav, Tim, Neng, Chan, Ya, Phall, Pov
The village bank, which consists of fifteen members, is located in Trapeang L. village in Takeo province. The members plan to use the loan which they obtained for different purposes.


Mrs. Rorn N. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice. Her husband, Mr. Naem Roun, is a construction worker. Although they try to work hard they still earn too little income to provide a better house for their family. Thus, Mrs. Rorn N. decided to ask for a loan to add to her savings to buy timbers to build the house. She is 40 years old and the mother of six children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while the others are attending the local school.


All the members in this group loan have end-of-term loans so they are not required to pay any principal on the loan until the very end of the loan term. End-of-term (EoT) loans are AMK’s main product because it is the most beneficial to Cambodia’s poor. It allows them to repay portions of the principal whenever they are financially able to. Most clients start to make their payments many months before the end of the loan term. Almost all of AMK’s clients make their payments on time. AMK, Kiva's partner, has a delinquency rate of only 0.09% and a default rate of 0% on Kiva.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
