Sambok's Group
In this Group: Sambok, Si, Mao , Savy
A rural villager living in the Ratanak Mondul district where crop farming is a common way to earn a living, Sambok is a 29-year-old mother of one son.

She is a farmer who plants on 3.5 hectares of farmland as the family's primary source of income, and she sometimes works for others for pay to gain extra income. She has been in this business for several years. The main challenge for her family's business is the lack of working capital to support her business.

Sambok has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle and she successfully paid back the loan with VisionFund. The loan has helped her family afford sufficient food and increase the family's income.

To cope with her challenges, she is now leading her group of four members to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to user her portion to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend for plowing. This loan will enable her to increase her crop yield so as to make a living better. She also hopes to extend her farmland.

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.
