Mas' Group
In this Group: Mas, Ty
Living in a rural area located in Tbaung Khmum province’s Kampong Cham district, Mas is a 61-year-old mother of five children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She has been involved in planting cassava and is supplementing her family’s income by working for others for a fee. Having been in the business for fifteen years, she can make a daily income from her current business of 30,000KHR and is able to save about 12,000KHR per day after expenses.

Mas’s group consists of two members who have been with VisionFund for two cycles. Mas has completely paid back the past loan which has helped her to better support her family as well as provide for her children’s education. Now she is leading her group to ask for another loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to pay labor costs for operating her cassava plantation. She hopes to earn more income from her current business so as to make 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.
