Yeng's Group
In this Group: Yeng, Sreyoun
Yeng, 60, is a widow and lives with seven children, in a village of the Tbaung Khmum district, Kampong Cham province. She has struggled to feed her children by farming rice, for twelve years. The current business earns her about 14,000 KHR per day, and she manages to save about 5,000 KHR each day, after covering daily living expenses.

Yeng’s group is comprised of two members, who are both female. Yeng is a third-cycle client, while the other group member is a second-cycle client with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Yeng has successfully repaid her past loans, which have helped her family relieve their financial burdens and improve their livelihood. Now requesting another loan with VisionFund, Yeng, who is the group leader, will use her portion of the loan to lease plots of farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to expand her rice paddy business, generating more profit to improve 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.
