Samun's Group
In this Group: Samun, Vanna
Originally from a village of Banteay Meanchey province’s Moungkul Borey district, Samun is aged 57 years and married with three children, four of whom are dependents and still in school. For more than twenty years, Samun and her husband have been growing cassava as the primary source of the family’s income to make a living. They can earn about 30,000 KHR per day and manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day for the future needs.
Samun’s group consists of two members and this is the first cycle for her loan with VisionFund. She is now leading her group to ask for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Samun will use her portion to pay for labor costs in harvesting cassava. She hopes to earn more income from her current business so as 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.
