Ngeb's Group
In this Group: Ngeb, Chhuok
A rural villager living in the Mongkol Borey district, Ngeb is 43 years old and married. She has six children, three of whom are dependent and still in school. She is a rice farmer who owns one hectare of farmland and she also makes baskets for sale to gain extra income while her husband is a paid worker in the village. Ngeb has been in this business for almost ten years. The main challenge for her is the lack of working capital to support her business.

This is the seventh loan cycle for Ngeb's group, consisting of two members. They both successfully paid back the loans with VisionFund. The past loans from VisionFund have helped Ngeb improve her living and have sufficient food to eat. Currently, she can earn up to 22,000 KHR per day from her current business. Now requesting a loan, Ngeb who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy bamboos for secondary business. She hopes this enable her to make more income so as to set aside some money to buy a motorbike.

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.
