Thea's Group
In this Group: Thea, Chheykea
Living in a wooden house in a rural village of the Kror Kor district, Thea is 26 years old and single. He has earned a living through farming rice on one hectare of farmland and raising pigs for 10 years. He manages to earn about 17,000 KHR per day and can save about 7,000 KHR each day for the family's future needs.

Thea has been with VisionFund for two cycles while the other group member has been with VisionFund for one cycle. Thea successfully paid back the past loans, which have helped him to have enough household supplies for his family. Now he is leading his group to request a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, he is going to use his portion to buy pig feed for his pig business and pay labor fees. He hopes to fatten his pigs as well as increase his crop yield and earn more income to improve his 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.
