Seak's Group
In this Group: Seak, Salin, Ly
Seak, 60, lives in a rural village of the Moung Russey district, Cambodia. She is a widowed mother of three children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. Seak has struggled to feed the family by farming rice for thirty years, earning about 20,000 KHR per day to spend for her family’s needs. The main challenge for her farming business is insufficient working capital to support her business.

Seak has been with VisionFund for four cycles while the other members are just with VisionFund this cycle. Seak completely paid back the past loans which have helped her better support her family’s living conditions. Now she is leading her group of three to ask for a loan. As the leader, she wants to use her loan to buy pesticides and fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to increase her crop yields so as to generate more income to improve her standard of living and keep her child in school.

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.
