This group loan is for four members who are living in Krabau village in Kandal province. They will use their portions of the loan in varied ways to support their families. The members in this group have selected Mrs. Tha M., 31 years old, as group leader.

Mrs. Tha M. is a housewife who cooks delicious food for her family. Her husband, Mr. Sarat Mak, is a soldier who earns a salary to support his family. She has two children, one of whom is enrolled in the local school while the other is too young to work or study. Currently, her house is not very comfortable because it has no electricity. To improve this condition, Mrs. Tha M. is applying for a loan to buy some electric supplies to connect her house to the electric power lines.

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.
