Bunthoeurn's Group
In this Group: Bunthoeurn, Sothan, Kong
Bunthoeurn is 37 years old and is originally from Sa Ang district of Kandal province, Cambodia. She has two little kids who are underage for schooling. She has managed about one hectare of farmland for growing rice as her main source of income. Besides helping her on the rice field, her husband also catches fish to sell for additional income. Bunthoeurn is able to earn almost 21,000 KHR per day from the current business, which she has been engaged in for 18 years. She has been with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) for one cycle already. She has paid back the entire loan, which has relieved her family's burden and upgraded her family's livelihood. Now she has formed a group of three female members to apply for a new loan in the same loan amount, 1,000,000 KHR each. As group leader, she will use her portion to buy a small boat to support her husband's fishing business. She hopes that her husband can catch more fish so as to add more income for their children's sake.

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.
