To support the family, Yeout works as a rice farmer while her husband works as a paid worker. This hard-working couple can earn around 14,000 KHR daily.
Yeout is leading Yeout's Group, a group of two female members (including Yeout), both of whom are third-time borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). They seek a combined loan in the amount of 1,800,000 KHR. The group leader states that, with the help of the previous loans, she has been able to better support her family.
This time, Yeout is using her loan portion to harvest rice and to buy two piglets to raise. This is a new business for her. With this loan, she hopes to harvest her rice on time and successfully operate her new, pig-raising business.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
