Chanra's Group
In this Group: Chanra, Rong, Yeourt
Chanra, 53, is a rural villager from the Sangke district of Battambang province. To make a living, she is a vendor who sells shoes as her main source of income. Her husband works as a paid worker for extra money to supplement her income. She has been involved in this business for five years. This is the fifth cycle for Chanra with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The past loans, which she has repaid completely, have supported her business in a good way and returned a decent income. Currently, she can earn up to 60,000 KHR per day. Now, she seeks a loan in the amount of 400,000 KHR, and her fellow group members request 1,000,000 KHR and 600,000 KHR. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy more shoes to resell. She hopes to make more income and expand her business in scale and move to a big store.

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.
