Huon's Group
In this Group: Huon, Yoeurn, Im
A resident of a rural area in the Bakan district of Pursat Province, Cambodia, Houn is a 51- year-old widow. She has eight children, one of whom is dependent on her and currently in school. To support her family, she grows rice and sells groceries, earning approximately 12,000 KHR per day.

Houn is a second-time borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The first loan that she requested has helped her relieve her family’s burdens and improve her family's quality of life. Now she is in need of money to buy fertilizer to improve her farmland and increase her working capital. Therefore, she is leading a group of three female members to apply for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. With the help of her portion of this loan, Houn believes that she will be able to boost her income even higher.

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.
