Ron is 51 years old and the mother of eight children, three of whom are living with her. Of the rest, some of them have jobs while the others help out in the family’s rice paddy.


For the past ten years Ron has farmed four hectares of rice. She and her husband are also raising two pigs for extra income. She earns about 17,000 KHR a day.


Ron is a borrower with VisionFund. She and another borrower comprise a two-member group (her co-member has taken loans three times). Past loans have successfully improved her lifestyle.


Now Ron is applying for a fourth loan of 1,400,000 KHR while her co-member is applying for 1,300,000 KHR. As the group leader Ron will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her farm. She hopes to accrue more income so she can maintain living conditions, especially with decent food 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.
