In this Group: Mao, Simky
Mao is 43 years old, married, and has six children, two of whom attend school and are dependent on her. She lives in a wooden house located in Bakan district of Battambang province, She and her husband make a living from rice growing on six hectares of farmland, from which they are able to earn up to 28,700 KHR per day.

Mao formed a group of two to apply for their first loan from VisionFund. She and her co-borrower are seeking 2,000,000 KHR and 3,000,000 KHR, respectively. Mao will use her portion to buy potash for her crop husbandry. Her main challenge is the shortage of working capital in order to support her crop. She hopes that this loan will help her to increase her crop output and earn a good profit for her children's sake.

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.
