This village bank loan consists of thirteen members. They are located in Preaek Svay village in Kandal province.

Mrs. Cheng S. was born in 1980 and is a married woman. She is the village bank president. She was selected to be the village bank president by the other members. She stays at home and takes care of her two children. Her husband, Mr. Mok Simon, is a teacher at a private schoO. where he can earn a little salary to support his family.

Now the house where they live has flooded, so Mrs. Cheng S. would like to ask for a loan to buy soil to fill in her land.

This couple has two children: one is attending a local schoO. and the younger one is only 4 years old.

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.
