In this Group: Samart, Phalla, Simy
Samart is aged 52 and married. She has five children. Living in a village of the Kandal Stoeng district, Samart farms rice on a one-hectare plot of farmland and also work as a paid worker in the local area to better support her family. Having been this business for seventeen years, she manages to earn about 48,000 KHR per day to feed her family.

Samart’s group consists of three members who live in the same village and she is a first-cycle client with VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for farmland. She hopes this loan will help her to earn more income from her business so as to make a living better.

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.
