Savun's Group
In this Group: Savun, Chea, Na, Len, Kimheang
A married mother with eleven children, Savun is 55 years old and lives in the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province. For the past 35 years she and her husband have worked to alleviate the family’s hardships by growing rubber trees. She also works for pay at a rubber tree plantation, earning about 28,700 KHR a day.

Savun and her group of five members are applying for a 5,000,000 KHR loan through VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. As the group leader, she will use her portion of the loan to buy a decent motorbike to help in her work. She hopes that she can make more money so she can build a new house for her family.

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.
