Han's Group
In this Group: Han, Ren
Han is 57 years old and married. She lives with her husband and one child in a rural area located in the Thmor Koul district in Cambodia. She has been growing cassava crops for 20 years. Low crop yield is the main challenge for her business.

This is the seventh loan for Han with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, while the other group member has been with VisionFund for four cycles. Now she is leading her group to request a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy pesticides for her cassava crops and use a portion of it to spend on labor costs. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her family’s earnings and make a better 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.
