Thary's Group
In this Group: Thary, La, Tanghun, Chanthy
Residing in a rural area of Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia, Thary is 28 years old and married. She has one beloved daughter who is still under her care. Thary earns her living through farming rice and raising pigs. Her husband complements the income by working as a rice farmer also and working one more job as a paid worker. Thary has been involved in her current businesses, rice farming and pig raising, for six years, earning approximately 10,000KHR per day and saving around 5,000KHR after offsetting her daily expenses.

Thary is a second-cycle client with VisionFund. The past loan has helped her to buy more pigs to raise and, most importantly, guarantee food security for her family. Now she is leading four female group members to take out a loan in the amount of 2,700,000KHR in total. Thary, with her requested loan portion, will pay the cost of harvesting her rice paddy. She believes that with the help of this loan, she can boost her income and improve the living standard of her family.

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.
