Leap's Group
In this Group: Leap, Mao, Rath
Age 59 and a citizen from the Ek Phnom district of Battambang Province, Leap is a mother of six children. Currently, only one schoolchild still counts on her. To add to the family’s income, her husband works at construction sites besides helping on the farmland. Farming is the business that Leap has been with for 34 years.

She is a four-cycle client with VisionFund. She has used her past loans wisely in order to support her business and to provide a decent income to cover the cost of meals three times a day. Now, her current income is up to about 35,300 KHR per day.

Now, she has formed a group of three to apply for a new loan. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed, and to pay plowing fees and a water pumping fee. She hopes to earn more income from her current business and improve her lifestyle.

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.
