Torb's Group
In this Group: Torb, Hout
Residing in a rural village of the Srey Snom district of Siem Reap province, Torb is 51 years old and married. She has seven children, two of whom are dependents and still in school. To support the family, she and her husband have been farming rice on five hectare of farmland. The current business earns her family about 16,700 KHR per day to meet her family’s needs.

Torb’s group consists of two members who are just joined with VisionFund for this cycle. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to spend on plowing the field. She hopes to increase her rice crop so as to make a better living and keep her children in school.

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.
