Yean's Group
In this Group: Yean, San
Originally from the Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, Yean is 59 years old and the mother of seven children. Her family's sources of income are from cassava and rice farming. This business returns her about 35,000 KHR per day.

Never having been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) before, Yean has formed a group of two to take out a new loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy potash and to pay for a plowing fee. She strongly believes that she can increase her income and gain back a good yield.

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.
