Mao's Group
In this Group: Mao, Kak, Samor, Theourn, Sav
Mao, 59-years-old and the married mother of two children, lives in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She crops rice on two hectares of farmland and this is the single source of income for her family. This business, which she has been engaged in since she was 29-years-old, earns her about 20,000 KHR per day.

Mao, is a third time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), and she leads a group of five members to seek new loan. The positive impact of her past loans has enabled her to raise her standard of living. Out of 5,000,000 KHR as the total loan’s amount, Mao, whose loan portion is 1,000,000 KHR, will spend this loan to pay the plowing fee for her farmland and to buy fragrant rice seed for growing. She hopes to gain more yield from her crops so that she can make 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.
