Eng's Group
In this Group: Eng, Pheap, Sao
Eng, 48, is married and resides in a rural village of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She has six children, three of whom are dependents and still in school. She earns a living through cultivating rice, while her husband is a house builder. Having been in the rice farming business for more than twenty-five years, Eng can earn about 25,000 KHR per day from her current business. She manages to save about 12,000 KHR each day, after living expenses, for future needs.

This is a group loan for Eng's Group, which consists of three members who live in the same area. Eng has been a member of VisionFund for two loan cycles already, while the other group members are first- and fifth-cycle clients. Eng's past loans from VisionFund, which she successfully repaid, have helped her to better support her business. Now leading her group to apply for a new loan from VisionFund, Eng (who is the leader) will use her portion of this loan as follows: she will use part of the money to buy fertilizers for her farmland, and part to buy cement for her husband's business.

With this loan, Eng hopes to increase her current business, and also hopes to earn a larger income to make a better 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.
