Sokkhoeun leads a group made up of three females. She and one of her group have been with VisionFund since 2010 while the third member has just joined VisionFund. Her first loan from VisionFund helped her to have regular income, to purchase some basic household necessities and send her children to school.
She is requesting a loan partly to pay for harvesting and partly to purchase feed for her chicken and ducks. The loan will allow her to finish harvesting her rice and also feed her chicken and ducks enough so that they will become fat. This will enable her to make a better living and keep her children in school.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
