Chanthy's Group
In this Group: Chanthy, Thavy, Oun, Chai, Phany, Tuy
Chanthy is 26 years old and a married mother of a small child. The main sources of family income are from cassava farming and from her husband's occupation, working as a paid worker at a rubber plantation. Cassava farming is the business that Chanthy has had for five years.

Chanthy has been with VisionFund Cambodia (Kiva’s partner) for one past cycle already. She has repaid her previous loan wisely to improve her lifestyle better than before. Now, she leads a group of six members to get a new loan.

Chanthy is seeking KHR 1,200,000, while her co-borrowers are seeking KHR 1,400,0000 each. She will spend her second loan, as group leader, to pay for weeding fees for her cassava farm. She hopes to gain a good yield from her crops and to make more money.

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.
