Putsakada's Group
In this Group: Putsakada, Runa
Putsakada lives in a rural village of the Sangke district, in Battambang province. She is aged 55 years and a married mother of four children. All of her children are dependents and still in school. For the last thirty-four years, Putsakada has been working as a teacher, while her husband is a solider. The current job earns her about 27,000KHR per day, to support her family’s needs.

Putsakada has been a member of VisionFund for eleven loan cycles already. She completely paid back the previous loans. She has used the loans from VisionFund to better support her business and her family’s living conditions. Now, she is leading her group to ask for a new loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion of the loan funds to buy tables, chairs, and a whiteboard, for tutoring students at home. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from her current job, so as to improve her standard of living.

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.
