Thany's Group
In this Group: Thany, Savat
Thany lives in a rural area of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She is 33 and married with four dependent children, one daughter and three sons, all of whom are still in school. To support the family, she has been in raising pigs for ten years. She supplements the family's income through seeding rubber trees for sale and also selling grocery items at home. Her husband is a policeman. The low price of rubber seedlings and pigs in the market are still the main challenges for her business.

Thany, the group leader, has had two loans with VisionFund, while the other member has had three loans from VisionFund. She completely repaid the past loans which have helped her relieve her family's burden and improve her livelihood.

Now she and her group member are applying for a loan of 1,400,000 Riel (KHR) each. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and pig feed, and to take care of rubber seedlings. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from the current business so as to make a better living 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.
