Ban's Group
In this Group: Ban, Shea
Living in a rural village located in the Sangke district of Battambang province, Ban is 58 and widowed. She has eight children, two of whom are dependent on her. She has struggled as a widow to earn a living through farming rice and raising pigs. She has been in this business for ten years to support her big family.

Ban received her first loan with VisionFund three cycles ago and has successfully repaid her loans. The past loans have helped her better support her family. Now she and her group member who is just with VisionFund this loan cycle are applying for a loan to buy fertilizer for farming and to use a portion of it to buy feed for her pig business. With this loan, she hopes to earn a larger income so as to expand 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.
