Residing in a rural area of the Moung Russey district in Cambodia’s Battambang province, Voern is a 57-year-old, married father of five children. Three of his children are dependent, two are still in school while the remaining one is too young for school. To support the family, Voern and his wife have been involved in rice farming and sesame planting for ten years. He earns about 22,000 KHR each day and saves approximately 15,000 KHR after paying his daily expenses.

Voern, a third-time borrower, is leading a group of five. He completely paid back the previous loans, and it has enabled him to better support his family as well as his current business. Now he is leading his group to ask for a loan. As the leader, he is going to use his portion to buy fertilizer for his cultivated land. He hopes to increase his crop yield so he can sell it for a good price in order to improve his standard of living and keep his children 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.
