Channy's Group
In this Group: Channy, Phat
Channy is 33 years old and married with two children, both of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She and her family live in a village in the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province. To make a living, she and her husband have been selling grocery items in the local area for two years, earning about 5,000 KHR per day to meet the family needs.

Channy is just with VisionFund this cycle while the other member has been with VisionFund for seven cycles. Now she is leading her group of two to request a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy more grocery items for selling. She hopes to earn more income for the family to earn 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.
