Yon's Group
In this Group: Yon, Sokhin, Ven, Sinat
Yon is a 41-year-old married woman. She lives in a rural village of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province and has two children (one daughter and one son). To make a living, she has been planting cassava (an edible root) for 20 years, earning about 44000 KHR per day.

Yon leads a group of four women applying for a loan with VisionFund Cambodia. She's been with VisionFund for one cycle while her fellow members have been with VisionFund from one to three cycles. Yon used the first loan successfully to better support her family.

As the group's leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to pay for labor. She hopes to increase her crop yield and earn additional income to improve her standard of living.

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.
