Tharong's Group
In this Group: Tharong, Kimthen
Tharong is 29 years old and a mother one daughter who is still in school. She is a resident from Prey Chhor district of Kompong Cham province. To feed her family, she is a rice farmer and works as a paid worker to supplement her income. She has been involved in this business for 10 years, earning about 40,000 KHR per day.

This is not the first loan for Tharong with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She repaid her past loan completely. It helped her to improve her living standard especially to buy household appliances and to keep her children in school. Now, she has formed a group of two to get a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed and to pay for a labor fee, a reaping fee, and a land leasing fee. She hopes that she can increase her yield.

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.
