There are three members in Samphors’ group. She and other two members have been with VisionFund for five years. Since 2006, the loan has made her live better with sufficient food to eat. She completely paid back the loans with VisionFund. She is now leading this group to apply for another loan with VisionFund. As the leader, Samphors wants to use her loan of KHR1,400,000 to pay for labor to harvest her rice crop and use a portion to pay for combine harvester. This loan will enable her to harvest her rice crops to be ready for sale and daily consumption. She hopes to sell the crops for good profit and set aside some money to afford a bigger house for living and also keep her children in school until they get a higher education.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund Cambodia is a Christian organization and microfinance institution that provides small loans and other financial services to improve the lives of children, empower poor women and their families, and grow successful businesses. The organization works primarily in rural parts of Cambodia and has distinguished itself by targeting the very poor who require smaller loan sizes, regardless of religious beliefs, gender or ethnic background.
Kiva lenders’ funds will help the organization to expand into the northeastern provinces of the country, which have historically been underserved and difficult to reach with financial services.
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.
