Thea's Group
In this Group: Thea, Osakphea
A villager from a rural area located in the Sithor Kandal district of Prey Veng province, Thea is 37 years old and married. She has three dependent children, two of whom are in school. The primary source of her family’s income is from weaving mats and her husband is a paid worker to earn additional income. She has been in this business for 17 years. The current business earns her about 40,000 KHR per day.

Thea has just been with VisionFund for this cycle. Now she is leading her group to seek a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy piglets to raise and use some portion of it to spend on building a piggery. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income through this new business.

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.
