Chouk's Group
In this Group: Chouk, Thoang
Chouk , from the Srey Snom district of Siem Reap province, is 33 years old and married. She is blessed with three children, who are still in school. To support daily food consumption, she farms rice on a two-hectare area and cassavas on another half-hectare area. This business, which she has engaged in for 15 years, returns her about 25,000 KHR. Chouk has never borrowed from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) before. Now, she is leading a group of two to apply for a loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy rice seed, potash, and pesticide for her crops. She hopes to bring in her crops on time and earn a good 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.
