Pith's Group
In this Group: Pith, Savon, Sarorn, Khom
This group loan is comprised of four people who all live in Preaek Louk village in Kandal province. Mr. Pith S. is the group leader who has been selected by all the members; they will use their loans for different purposes. He is a farmer who owns a plot of land to cultivate rice on to support his family, and his wife, Mrs. Preak Boung, is a housewife.

This family has some problems because their house is dark at night and it does not have fresh water to use. Thus, Mr. Pith S. decided to ask for a loan to buy electricity supplies. He would like to buy a hose to provide water for his house with the remainder of the loan. He is a father of five children, three of whom are employed in a garment factory, while the others are attending the local public school.

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.
