Nim's Group
In this Group: Nim, Chanthou, Heng
Nim is 56 years old and one of the breadwinners of her family consisting of five children. She is a villager from Pursat province. Her main sources of income are from sweet selling, maize farming, and her husband's occupation as a construction worker. She has been involved in these businesses for 15 years, earning about 30,000 KHR per day.

With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), Nim is a fifth-time borrower. The positive impact of her past loan has enabled her to build a proper fence for her house and provided timely for support her business. Now, she teams up a group of three to get a new loan. The total amount of her entire group is 3,600,000 KHR, of which 1,400,000 KHR is her loan portion. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy more ingredients to make sweets for reselling.

She hopes that she can make more money to set up a small grocery selling business in front of her front yard to earn addition 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.
