Chan's Group
In this Group: Chan, Ravuth, Lida, Chom
Chan is a 47-year-old mother of five children, only one of whom is dependent on her. Her family lives in a rural area of the Mongkoul Borey district of Banteay Meanchey province, Cambodia. To support her family, she has been engaged in raising three pigs and complementing her income by working for another person for a fee. The current business earns her about 25,000 KHR and allows her to save approximately 10,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses.

Chan has been a member of Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for two cycles already. She successfully repaid the past loans which have helped to relieve her family’s burden and improve her livelihood. Now she is leading her group of four members to apply for a loan with VisionFund. Chan will use her portion to buy pig feed and five piglets for raising. She hopes this loan will enable her to fatten her pigs so as to sell them for a good price in order to improve her family's living conditions.

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.
