Channa's Group
In this Group: Channa, Kimsong
Channa is 45 years old, a mother of one son who is working as a paid-worker. She is a widow and a breadwinner of the family who relies on a single business, pig-raising, to overcome the family’s hardship as a single mother. This is the business that she has been engaged in for 11 years, earning about 32,500 KHR per day. This is the third loan for Channa with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). After the loan that she has repaid with success, she can support her business better than before. Now, she has formed a group of two to get a new loan from VisionFund again in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. Channa is the leader, and she will spend her loan portion to buy pig feed for her pig-raising business. She hopes that she can expand her business better than before.

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.
