Mean's Group
In this Group: Mean, Chy, Rom, Oeng
Mean is a 42-year-old villager from a rural area located in the Mongkol Borey province’s Batanteay Meanchey district. She is married and has five children. She earns a living through raising pigs and her husband is a paid worker to earn extra income. Having been in this business for 15 years, Mean can earn about 35,000 KHR per day to meet her family’s needs.

This is the first loan for Mean’s group of four members. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Mean wants to use her portion to buy piglets for raising and pig feed for nourishing them. She hopes to fatten her pigs so as to sell them for a good price to better her family's living condition.

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.
