Oun's Group
In this Group: Oun, Doen, Lorn
Oun, 45 years old, is a married mother who lives in a rural area of the Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She has five children, two of whom are dependent on her. To make a living, she has been working in rubber-fields for others for a fee. Engaging in this business for twenty-five years, she is able to earn about 8,000 KHR per day and manages to save about 2,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Oun’s group consists of three members. She has already been with VisionFund for one cycle while the other members are new to VisionFund this cycle. The first loan, which she has recently just repaid, helped her to relieve family’s burden and improve their livelihood.

Now she and her group members are seeking for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to renovate her house. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a decent house for her children, so she does not need to worry about her house conditions especially during the rainy season.

Additional Information

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
