Samoen's Group
In this Group: Samoen, Chanthet
Samoen, 38, is the married mother of one son who is still in school. Rice farming has been Samoen's main income source for several years, supplemented by working for others for a fee. Samoen currently earns about 11,000 riels (KHR) per day and manages to save about 4,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Samoen’s group consists of two members who live in a village of the Ou Reang Ov District of Kampong Cham Province. Samoen is taking out her first microloan with VisionFund. She is leading her group in applying for a loan. She is going to use her portion to rent a harvest machine for harvesting her rice and will spend a portion of it on household supplies. She hopes to earn more income from her paddy field so as to make a better living and keep her son in school.

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.
