Poy has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle and completely paid back the past loan while the other member is just with VisionFund for this loan cycle. She has wisely used the first loan to better support her family with sufficient food. Now leading her group of two to ask for a loan, Poy, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy pesticides and seeds for her plantation and use a portion of it to spend on labor fees. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow her corn more fruitfully and healthfully so as to keep her lifestyle in a good condition.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
