Four members, who live in Svay village in Takeo province, make up this group loan. Mrs. Prak L., age 30, is the group leader selected by the other members. Each will use their portion of the loan for various goals.

Her husband, Mr. Saret Khoem, is a farmer who owns a 0.2-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell and he is also a construction worker. She is the mother of two children who are both too young for school. Her problem is that her home is uncomfortable to live in, but she does not have enough money to make improvements. Therefore, Mrs. Prak L. is requesting a loan to fix her home.

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.
