Mao's Group
In this Group: Mao , Nem
A villager from a rural area located in Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, Mao is 56 years old and married. She has five children. To make a living, she has been farming rice and growing sesame and working for others for a fee. The current business earns her about 36,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s need.

Mao has been a member of VisionFund for three cycles and she wisely and successfully used the past two loans to improve her family’s living standards. Now she and another member are applying for a loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she wants to use her portion to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland, and use a portion of it to spend for labor. She hopes to grow her rice healthily and fruitfully, and also hopes to improve her living conditions.

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.
