Oun's Group
In this Group: Oun, Ra, Taingoar, Saroeun
Oun is 37 years old and a married mother of two: one boy and one girl. Her two kids are still in school. To earn a living, Oun and her husband have been farming rice and selling coconuts for almost 20 years. Oun also owns a small grocery store to generate additional income. Per day, she makes about five US dollars. Oun received her first loan from VisionFund in 2011 and this loan has helped to support her family's daily expenses including food and the children's school fees. After successfully paying the first loan, Oun is now leading a group of four female members to request another loan. She will use her portion to buy fertilizers and spend on land plowing. She hopes the second loan will enable her to make more income from her rice farming business so she can feed her family sufficiently and keep her two children in school until they are finished.

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.
