Seat's Group
In this Group: Seat, Ra, Lina
Living in a rural village located in the Ek Phnom district, Seat is 30 years old and married with three children, one of whom is still in school. She is a tailor, while her husband is a motor-taxi driver, to earn income to support their family. She has been in this business for several years. This is the second loan for Seat’s group of three members, and they successfully paid back the previous loan from VisionFund.

The past loan helped Seat to provide her children with decent food. She can earn around 41,700 KHR per day from her current business. She is leading her group to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fabrics for her business and to pay her family’s daily expenses. With this loan, she hopes to increase her tailoring business so as to increase her family’s income and improve her family's 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.
