This will be Kimly’s second time requesting a loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The first loan that she received enabled her to buy more pigs to raise and secure food for her family. She has faced challenges such as lacking working capital and unhealthy pigs. Now she is leading her fellow group members, Pov and Lav, to take out a loan with VisionFund. With her requested loan portion, Kimly will buy pig feed and fishing materials, such as fish traps and cast nets. After receiving and using her loan portion, she believes that she will be able to boost her income and use a portion of the income to show the love that she has for her children by educating them; sending them to good school.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
