Kour's Group
In this Group: Kour, Lorn
Kour is 48 years old and married. She has two children, one of who is under her responsibility and working in a garment factory. Rice farming is the only source of income for her family. She has been farming for almost 25 years. With her current business, she is able to earn around 16,000 KHR per day to spend for daily expenses.

This is the first loan for Kour with VisionFund while her group member has been with VisionFund for one cycle already. She is leading her group of two to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to pay for labor in plowing. She hopes to make more rice so that she can earn more income and increase her current business.

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.
