The twelve people who make up this village bank loan will each use their portion of the loan for different purposes, so that it can improve their family's standard of living. Mrs. Roeurn is the village bank president who has been selected by the other members. She was born in 1960. She is a farmer who owns a plot of land where she can grow rice and vegetables to sell to support her family. Now she has a problem because her house is in a puddle. So to improve this condition, Mrs. Roeurn is seeking a loan to buy soil for filling in around her house. She is a widow with a child who is employed in the garment factory. All the members are shown in the picture except for one at the right who is blocked.

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.
