Voeurn Group


Voeurn is a 52-year-old, married man with two children in his care, and he lives in the Kratie province of Cambodia. He is a construction worker, and has been doing this job since 2013. His wife is a 51-year-old; she earns her main income from cultivating rice and fattening breeding cows for calves to sell. One of his children is a factory worker, while the other one is a student.

Voeurn is pictured first from the right. He is a group leader and would like to request a loan as part of a group of four members. He will use his portion to buy wooden pillars to build a stable for his wife’s business. This loan will allow him and his family to have enough of a place for their cows.

In the future, he is going to build a ground floor room, buy more cows to fatten, and support his youngest child to earn higher education.

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.
