Vy's Group
In this Group: Vy, Ros , Yuon, Thon
Originally from Pursat Province’s Kror Kor district, Vy is a local farmer who grows rice on one and a half hectares of land as a main source of income. She has three children, two of whom are still in school. The current business, which she has been with for ten years, has earned her about 14,200 KHR per day to support her family's needs.

Vy has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past four cycles. With the past loans, which she has repaid successfully, she feels confident that she can improve her living conditions and provide decent food for her kids. Now, she has formed a group of four to apply for a new loan. As the group's leader, she will use the loan portion to grow her rice. She hopes to increase the income with her business so she can keep her kids 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.
