Song's Group
In this Group: Song, Heab, Veasna, Sophal
Aged 60 and a local farmer from Battambang province where rice cropping is the most popular crop in the area, Song is a mother of four children. Two hectares of rice farming has returned her almost 39,000 KHR per day; it is the business that she has been involved with for 15 years.

This is the first loan for Song’s group with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The total amount of her entire group's loan is 1,400,000 KHR, of which 500,000 KHR is her loan portion. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer, rice seed, and herbicide for her crops.

She hopes that she can make 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.
