Roun's Group
In this Group: Roun, Sochean
Living in a rural area of the Mongkoul Borey district of Banteay Meanchey province, Cambodia, Roun is 32 years old. He is a married father of two daughters who all depend on him. He is a fisherman and sometimes works for others for a fee to earn extra income. He has been in this business for almost 10 years. The current business earns him about 20,000KHR per day, and he manages to save about 10,000KHR each day after daily expenses.

Roun has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle and has successfully paid back the past loan, while the other group member is in the first cycle with VisionFund. The first loan has helped him relieve his family’s burden and improve their livelihood. Now he and his group member are applying for a loan with VisionFund of 1,000,000KHR each. As the group leader, he is going to use his portion to buy a boat for fishing. He hopes this loan will enable him to catch more fish so as to improve his living standard.

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.
