In this Group: Samet, Roeurn
Samet is 33 years old and married. She has five children, four of whom are dependent on her as they are still in school. She and her husband provide for their family from the one hectare of farmland, planting cassava, and one hectare and a half area growing paddy. She has been in this business for fifteen years.

Samet is a third loan cycle client with Kiva partner VisionFund. She has managed her past loans with success in obtaining better living conditions, especially daily decent food for her family. Now, she is forming a group of two members to apply for a new loan. She and her member are seeking for 1,400,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR, respectively. As the leader, she is going to use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and to pay for a tractor’s leasing fee (plowing fee). She hopes to receive better yields so as to earn more income in order to maintain a good standard of living for her family.

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.
