Ki's Group
In this Group: Ki, Moeun, Sokha, Sokheng, Heng
Ki, 52, is a married mother of five children, three daughters and two sons. She resides in a rural village of the Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, where crop farming is a common way to earn a living. Like other villagers, cassava planting is the main source of her family's income and she has been farming a 3-hectare plot of farmland for almost thirty-two years.

To better support their living, her husband runs a ferry boat for fees. The main challenge for her business is the lack of working capital to grow her business. With her current business, she can earn around 9,700 KHR per day.

Ki's group consists of five members who are all female. Having completely paid back the first loan, she is now leading her group to apply for a second loan with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for 1,200,000 KHR each.

As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizers for the farmland and use a portion of it to fix the ferry boat and buy gasoline. She hopes this loan will enable her family to grow the business and make a better living.

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.
