Chan's Group
In this Group: Chan, Sakhyna
Chan is aged 26 years and married with two children. Her family lives in a rural area in the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia. To support the family, she has been raising pigs while her husband is a taxi driver to earn additional income. Having been in this business for ten years, Chan and her husband can earn about 90,000 KHR per day, and they can manage to save about 30,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Chan has been with VisionFund for six cycles while the other member is just with VisionFund in this cycle. Now Chan is leading her group to request a loan. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy more piglets to raise. She hopes to fatten her pigs so as to sell them for a good price to improve her 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.
