Oeurn's Group
In this Group: Oeurn, Kea, Lun, Ing, Eap
Oeurn is a farmer from a rural area of Prey Chhor district, Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been farming rice for over thirty years to support their family of two children. To earn additional income for the family, they both grow vegetables for sale.

This will be Oeurn's second loan with VisionFund. The first loan enabled her to better feed her family. Given her good performance, Oeurn was appointed to be the leader of her group of five female members. Oeurn will use her portion of this loan to buy fertilizers, seedlings and pesticides for her rice and vegetable farm. She hopes the crops will produce a good yield so that she can sell the products for good money and, as a result, get a proper house 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.
