Samun's Group
In this Group: Samun, Roey, Ry
Samun, 63, is a married father of five children residing in Moung Russey district of Battambang province. He has five children. To deal with the daily cost of living, he does rice cropping and pineapple planting. To help the family generate more income, his wife sells dessert after helping him on the rice farm. He has been involved in his current business for ages, earning about 20,000 KHR per day. This is the third loan for Samun’s group, composed of three members, with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). His past loans, which he has fully repaid, have enabled him to upgrade his living at a good pace. Now he and his co-borrowers are seeking 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, he will spend his loan portion to buy fertilizer for his farmland. He hopes that he can gain a good yield from his crop and 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.
