Rong's Group
In this Group: Rong, Komsot
Rong is 52 years old and married, and she resides in a rural village of Moung Russey district, in Cambodia’s Battambang province. She is blessed with three children, one of whom (a son) is employed as a paid worker. To earn a living for her family, Rong has been growing rice and raising pigs, tirelessly, for more than 20 years. She earns around 34,000 KHR daily and saves approximately 6,700 KHR, after deducting the daily living expenses.

Now Rong is in need of money to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and pig feed. Thus, Rong is leading a group member, who has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for one loan cycle already, to take out a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR, each. With the help of her part of the requested loan, this hard-working woman (Rong) believes that she can earn more income for the family and improve the family’s living standard.

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.
