Lina's Group
In this Group: Lina, Sokha, Sdoeng, Kley, Tun, Chen
Lina is aged 29 years and married with one son who is in school. She lives in a rural village of the Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, earning a living through farming rice and growing pineapples. She can earn about 58,000 KHR [Cambodian riels] per day from the current business.

This is Lina’s group loan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund, and she is a first-loan-cycle client with VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Lina will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her rice and pineapple field. She hopes to make more rice and pineapple and sell it for a good price so as to make a better 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.
