Eleven members make up this village bank loan. The group members have selected Mr. Pisith as the village bank president. They will each use their portion of the loan for different purposes to improve their family's standard of living.

Mr. Pisith was born in 1977. He is a farmer who owns a plot of land where he grows rice to support his own family and to sell. He is also a teacher in the local school while his wife, Mrs. Pheoun, is a seamstress in a garment factory. Currently he has some problems because his house is not comfortable to live in. To improve this situation, Mr. Pisith is asking for a loan to buy zinc and timber to fix his house. He will use the rest of the loan to buy some piglets for breeding to start a new business.

He is the father of three children: two are attending the local public school and the other is too yoU. to work or study.

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.
