Sokhea's Group
In this Group: Sokhea, Mot, Sreypov, Heam
Sokhea is a 26-year-old mother of one daughter who is still in school; her entire family is living in a rural village in the Kror Kor District of Pursat Province, Cambodia. To make a living, she and her husband have been farming rice on three hectares of farmland for several years. The current business earns her about 10,000 KHR per day and she manages to save about 5,000 KHR each day. The main challenge for her business is low crop yield resulting from the drought. Sokhea’s group consists of three members. She is the group leader, and a first time borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisonFund. Now leading her group to apply for loan, Sokhea will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from the crop yield so as to set aside some money to have a decent motor vehicle for commuting and to keep her child in school.

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.
