Chouk's Group
In this Group: Chouk, Sopheap
Originally from a rural village of Battambang province’s Sangke district, Chouk is a 64-year-old mother of five children, some of whom are still in school while the others help with their family’s business. She and her husband are farmers who grow rice and sesame in the village to make a living. Together, they can earn about 60,000 KHR per day and can manage to save about 30,000 KHR each day.
Chouk’s group consists of two female members and she has been with VisionFund for three cycles. She completely paid back the loans with VisionFund. The past loans have helped her better support her family. Now she and her group member are applying for a loan. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield so as improve their living standard and keep her 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.
