Channov's Group
In this Group: Channov, Sophea, Yek, Ri
A 44-year-old mother of one dependent child who is still in school, Channov is also a farmer who has been farming for 20 years to earn a living in her village located in the Ponhea Krek district. She has been supplementing her income by raising pigs for five years to gain additional income to better support her family. With her current business, she earns around US $2 per day and saves around US $1.50 daily.

Now Channov leads a group of four female members. This is her first loan with VisionFund. She will use this loan to buy feed for her pigs for US$50. She hopes to feed her pigs to be healthy and earn more income to improve her living conditions and keep her child in school.

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.
