Khen's Group
In this Group: Khen, Saroun, Phearun, Chouk
Khen is 31 years old and lives in a rural area in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has five children. She earns a living through growing rice on one hectare of farmland, which she has been in for ten years to support her family. This is the main source of the family’s income. She is able to earn around 15,000 KHR per day and saves about 10,000 KHR each day after daily expenses for the future needs.

Khen’s group consists of four members. She is leading her group to ask for a loan with VisionFund. She is in her first loan with VisionFund. Khen will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income in order to fulfill her dream to renovate her old house for living in.

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.
