Theavin's Group
In this Group: Theavin, Youmeng, Theavy, Sophal
Originally from a rural village of the Kandal Province’s Kandal Stoeng District, Theavin is a 27 year old mother of four dependent sons, all of whom are still in school. To support her children, she has been working as a tailor for eight years while her husband has been farming rice and sometimes supplementing the family’s income by working as a paid construction worker. Together, they can earn about KHR 20,000 per day, and can save about KHR 10,000 each day for future needs. Lack of working capital is the main challenge.

Theavin received her first loan from Kiva’s partner VisionFund a cycle ago, and she completely repaid the loan with VisionFund. She has used the past loan to better support her living. Now she is leading her group of four to apply for a loan. As the leader, Theavin will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow rice fruitfully and timely so as to better her standard of living 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.
