Thoen's Group
In this Group: Thoen, Sinoun, Hoert
Thoen is a villager of the Sangke district of Battambng Province, Cambodia. She is the 32-year-old mother of two children who need her care as they are still in school.

Thoen has been engaged in rice farming and planting oranges as the primary sources of her income. From the current business, which she has been in for 10 years, she can earn about KHR 21,000 per day, and she manages to save about KHR 10,000 each day after daily expenses.

Thoen's group consists of three female members. She has been with VisionFund for four cycles and completely paid back the past loans, which have helped her to support her family’s living conditions as well as expand her current business.

Now, she and her group member are seeking a new loan. She will use her loan portion to buy seeds and fertilizer for her plantation.

Thoern hopes to gain more income so as to make more income to improve her living condition 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.
