Roth's Group
In this Group: Roth, Keo
Roth is a 44-year-old mother of four children, some of whom are working for others for pay while some are still in school. To overcome the family's hardship, she and her husband have been farming and working for others for pay for about six years.

Roth decided to take her first loan with VisionFund in 2010. With effort, she successfully managed to repay the entire loan. The loan helped her to manage the cash flow of her rice farming business. Therefore, she is confident about taking a new loan with VisionFund and is acting as the leader for this group loan. The loan is in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR. She will use her loan to lease another plot of farmland to expand her rice paddy farm.

She hopes to improve her lifestyle and keep her children in school until the tertiary level.

About VisionFund Cambodia

VisionFund 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.
