Sila's Group
In this Group: Sila, Chamroen
From a rural village in the Dambae district of Cambodia, Sila is aged 50 and married with seven children. She and her husband are hard-working farmers who earn a living through growing cassava. Having engaged in this business for six years, they can earn about 25,000 KHR per day.

Sila is a fourth-cycle client with VisionFund. She is now leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her cassava and use a portion of it to spend on buying household supplies. She hopes to earn more income so as to fulfill her dream of building a bigger house in the future.

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.
