Nan's Group
In this Group: Nan, Chhot, Lanh
A resident from a rural village of the Dambae district, Nan is a 36-year-old mother of six children, five of whom are dependent on her and still in school. The family's main sources of income have been rice farming on 1 hectare of farmland and cassava planting on 1 hectare of farmland, for the past 18 years. Nan currently can earn about KHR (Cambodian riels) 20,000 daily from her business for daily expenses. Low crop yields resulting from floods is the main challenge for her farming business.

This is the first loan for Nan’s group of three female members. She is leading her group in applying for a loan. As the leader, Nan will use her portion to buy pesticides for protecting her farmland and use the remainder to pay for labor. Nan hopes this loan will enable her to get a high yield from the plantation so as to sell the harvest for a good price 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.
