Theourm's Group
In this Group: Theourm, Phon
A widowed mother of six children from Battambang province, Theourm is 52 years old and depends solely on a single business, catching fish to sell. She has been with this business for five years and is able to get about 26,000 KHR per day.

This is Theourm's first time with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She leads a group of two to take out a new loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fishing net and a small boat. She hopes this purchase will help her to catch more fish and earn more income.

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.
