Chantha's Group
In this Group: Chantha, Sophy, Sreyna, Yorn, Sreymom
Chantha, 59, lives in a rural village of Kandal province’s Kandal Stoeng district in Cambodia. She is married and has seven children. For the last 28 years, Chantha has been farming rice to support her family. The current business earns her about 26,000 KHR per day to meet her family’s needs.

Chantha has been with VisionFund for four cycles, while the other members are new to VisionFund this cycle. Now she is leading her group of five to ask for a loan. As the leader, Chantha will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland, and she will use a portion of it to spend on labor costs in plowing the field. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield so as to increase her family's living conditions.

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.
