Ngorn's Group
In this Group: Ngorn, Put, Ngan
A resident from a rural village in the Me Mot district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia, Ngorn is a 49-year-old mother of seven children, five of whom are dependent on her and still in school. The main source of the family’s income is cassava growing, which she has been engaging in for 10 years.

Ngorn’s group consists of three members (one female and two males) who live in the same village. She is in her first loan cycle with VisionFund. Ngorn, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy pesticides for the cassava plantation and use a portion of it to spend on labor costs, as she will hire somebody to clear grass. Through this loan, Ngorn hopes her business is more profitable, and then, her family can live in a better condition.

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.
