This group loan consists of four members. Pich, a married woman who was born in 1980, is the group leader. She was selected to be the group leader by the other members.

She is a seamstress in a garment factory, while her husband, Mao, is a security guard in a private company. With their jobs they are able to earn small salaries to support their family living. This couple has a child who is attending a local school.

Currently they do not have their own house, so they rent a house to live in. They want to build their own house, but they do not have enough money to build. Therefore, Pich would like to ask for a loan to add to her savings to build a house.

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.
