In this Group: Lis, Sothy, Leat, Sorun
Lis, a young mother of a little kid, is 28 years old and a local farmer residing in Kampong Cham province. She plants cassava and rice as the main income generating activity to deal with her family’s financial burden. For eight years engagement in the business, she is able to earn up to 20,000 KHR. This is Lis' third loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has used her previous loans wisely to support her living in a gradual manner. Now she is a group leader of three other joint members. For Lis, her loan portion will be used on paying for leasing cassava farmland. She highly hopes that she can get more income to better her living.

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.
