Yong's Group
In this Group: Yong, Phorn, Bopha
A widow living in a rural village of the Battambang province’s Ek Phnom district, Yong is 61 years and earns a living through farming rice, planting watermelons and beans, and sometimes supplementing her income by raising cows. She has 11 children, one of whom works as a paid construction worker to better support the family. Having been in this business for thirty-five years, she can earn about 54,000 KHR per day and can save about 10,000 KHR each day for future needs.

Yong has been with VisionFund for six cycles while the other members have been from four to seven cycles. She completely repaid back the past loans, which have helped her to better support her family. Now she is leading her group of three to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer, rice seeds and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow her rice healthfully and fruitfully so as to make better 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.
