Chet's Group
In this Group: Chet, Than
A villager from a rural area of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia, Chet is a 41-year-old married mother of eight children, four of whom are dependent on her; some are in school and some are too young for school. She farms rice on four hectares of farmland and complements that income by selling grocery items, while her husband works for others for a fee. Together, they are able to earn about 24,000 Riel (KHR) per day and manage to save almost 10,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. Low crop yield destroyed by insects is the main challenge for her rice-field.

Chet is a first-time borrower with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. She is leading her group of two to ask for a loan. With her portion, she is going to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to grow her rice quickly and fruitfully so as to make a living better and keep her children in school.

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.
