Living in a rural village of Thmor Kuol, is fifty-year-old Phorn, the mother of seven children. All her children are independent now. As villager, Phorn is also a rice farmer to make a living. Moreover, she also raises pigs to better feed the family.

Phorn joined VisionFund three years ago and completely repaid back the the loan which has helped her to grow her business gradually. She can earn about US$12 per day. Now she is applying a new loan of KHR 1,000,000 to buy seeds and fertilizer for her farmland to help her to grow rice during this dry season. She hopes to earn more income and buy more material that will help her increase her crop yield such as a plowing machine and a water pump.

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.
