Pouy's Group
In this Group: Pouy, Savoeurt, Savat
Pouy, 61, is a widowed mother of five children living in the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. Pouy has struggled to make a daily living by growing rice as her primary source of income. She also gets paid to wrap hashed meat with a banana leaf.

Pouy is a fourth-time borrower with VisionFund. Her past loan is completely repaid already, and has supported her business better than before the loan. It provided her with a good income to purchase daily food for her children. For the current loan, the total amount for her group is 3,400,000 KHR with Pouy’s portion being 1,000,000 KHR. She will use her loan to pay a harvesting and plowing fee. Also, she will buy seed and fertilizer for her rice crop. She hopes to increase her income and use it for her family, especially for her children’s education.

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.
