Ouch's Group
In this Group: Ouch, Chanthoen
Ouch, 48, lives in a rural village of Kampong Cham Province’s Dambae district, Cambodia. She is married and has four children, three of whom are dependents and still attending school. For the last ten years, Ouch has been planting cassava, while her husband has worked as a construction worker in the local area.

Ouch has been a member of Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for four cycles already and she has completely repaid her loans. She has used the past loans wisely and successfully to improve her family’s livelihood and support her current business. After the four cycles with VisionFund, she now can earn about 13,000 KHR per day to respond to her family’s needs. She manages to save about about 5,000 KHR each day for her future needs. Now, she is leading her group of two to request another loan. Ouch, the group's leader, will use her portion to buy insecticides for protecting her farmland. She hopes to grow her cassava fruitfully and timely so she can sell it at a good price and 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.
