Mom's Group
In this Group: Mom, Poch
A citizen from a village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia, Mom is a 43-year-old married mother of five children, four (one daughter and three sons) of whom are dependent on her and still in school. The family’s main source of income is rice farming on five hectares of farmland, which she has been involved in for 24 years. She currently earns about KHR20,000 per day. Drought is the main challenge she faces.

Mom has already received and repaid one VisionFund loan which helped her relieve her family's burden, while the other member of the group has received and repaid two loans. Now requesting a new group loan, Mom, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland and to pay for gasoline.

She hopes this loan will enable her to make her farming business more productive and profitable so she can better support her family and keep her children in school.

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.
