Rith's Group
In this Group: Rith, Tonh
Living in a rural village of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Rith is aged 40 years and married with two dependent children who are still in school. He is a teacher and is sometimes involved in buying and selling rice in a local area. His wife also supplements the family income by selling snacks. Together, they have been engaging in this business for six years.

Rith has been with VisionFund for four cycles while the other member has been with VisionFund for three cycles. The previous loans have helped him to better support his family’s living conditions. Now he is leading his group of two to apply for a loan. Rith is going to use his portion to buy more rice to resell. He hopes to earn more from his current business so as to improve his standard of living.

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.
