Rum's Group
In this Group: Rum, Phon, Noeurn, Doeurng, Sokhom
Rum, 52 and a diligent farmer residing in Battambang province of Cambodia, is also a mother of seven children. Currently, she is responsible only for three children as they are still students in local public school in the area. On two hectare each of farmland, she grows paddy rice and sesame in order to support her family; it is the business that she has been with for 10 years.

Two cycles ago was her original loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has completely paid back her entire loan and it has empowered her to upgrade her lifestyle and be in better shape. Now, she has formed a group of five members including her. The total requested loan amount is 5,300,000 KHR. Rum whose loan portion is 500,000 KHR will use her loan to pay for labor fees, seed and insecticide. She hopes that this purchase will help her to grow her crops on time and return her double profit.

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.
