Mrs. Mao V. is a village bank president of twenty-one members in Stueng Village in Kandal Province. The members will use the loan in various ways. For instance, Mrs. Mao V. owns a pool table which she rents to players. Her husband, Mr. Huot Savan, helps her in the business. They have nine children; seven of whom are employed in different businesses while the remaining two are attending the local school. Although Mrs. Mao V.'s family members have different business activities, they still do not have enough money to complete their house. Thus, Mrs. Mao V. has decided to request a loan to add to her savings to build a staircase for her house.

This is a village bank loan consisting mainly of end-of-term loans. Three members have end-of-term loans and the rest have monthly payment loans.

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.
