Vany's Group
In this Group: Vany, Sinat, Sinang, Nay
Aged 53, Vany has six children living in a rural village of the Moung Russey district, Battambang province.

To support the family, Vany does rice farming while her husband is a beehive hunter. Apart from the two mentioned businesses, they also raise pigs for sale to make more income. From these businesses, they are able to earn about 30,000 KHR per day. Her farming business struggles when there is a natural disaster like drought or flood.

Vany is new to VisionFund while her other three group members have been with this Kiva partner for many loan cycles. Because of her good characteristics, Vany was appointed to be a group leader. Vany will use her portion to spend on farmland preparation, to buy more piglets and pig feed.

Vany hopes this loan will help her to grow more rice with good yield and that the pigs will grow healthily so that she can sell them for a higher price and in turn allow her to help the children with their school fees.

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.
