Chann's Group
In this Group: Chann, Sarun
Chann, 29 years old, is a farmer originally from the Bakan district of Pursat province. She is married and has two sons. Chann and her husband have five hectares of farmland, where they have been growing paddy rice for 15 years. However, she sometimes experiences low crop production, especially during droughts.

Chann, the leader of this 2-member group, is a first-time borrower with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. She is requesting a loan of 1,000,000 KHR and her co-member is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 KHR. Chann will use her portion of the loan to buy additional fertilizer and to pay for water pumping for her field. She highly hopes that she can boost her output gradually and increase her income for her 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.
