Him's Group
In this Group: Him, Ny
Him is a 44-year-old widow with three children, one daughter and two sons. She earns a living through farming rice on a two-hectare piece of farmland and also planting cassava on two hectares of farmland, which she has been doing for 23 years and 7 years, respectively. With her current business, she is able to earn around 25,000KHR per day to pay for her daily expenses. The main challenge for her family’s business is the drop in cassava price which has affected her earnings.

This is the first loan for Him’s group with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan of 1,000,000KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and she will use a portion of it to spend for land plowing. With this loan, she hopes to make more income to make a living better.

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.
