Twelve people have formed a village bank loan. They are located in Roung Kou village in Kandal province.

Mrs. P. K. was born in 1966 and is the village bank leader. She was selected to be the leader by the other members. She is a widow with five children. Three are seamstresses in the garment factory, one is Khmer cake seller, and the last one is a student in the local school. She earns her living by selling meatballs and sugar cane. With her business, she is able to earn a small income to support her family. Currently, her family living doesn’t have water at their home. So P. K. is asking for a loan to dig a well.

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.
