This is Savon's sixth loan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She successfully repaid the past loans which have helped her to relieve her family’s financial burden and support her children’s education. Now she can earn about 25,000 KHR per day and can save about 10,000 KHR each day for the future. With the need to support her business, she is now leading her group of four to request another loan with VisionFund. As the group leader, she will use her portion to buy seeds and pesticides for her farmland, as well as use a portion of it for land plowing. With this loan, Savon hopes to increase her crop yields so as to earn more income to improve her family’s lifestyle.
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.
