Pov's Group
In this Group: Pov, Senglong, Kunthea
At age 41, Pov is a widowed mother of two children. She and her family live in a rural area located in the Sa Ang district of the Kandal province. Pov has been planting taros on her 1.5 hectares of farmland for 21 years to support her family. Her business earns her about 23,000 KHR per day. She manages to save about 8,000 KHR per day after daily expenses.

Pov’s Group consists of three members who live in the same village. This will be Pov's third loan. The past loans have helped her better support her current business. Now she and her group members are requesting a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Pov is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and taro seeds for her business. She hopes to increase her income from her current business so as to make a better living.

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.
