In this Group: Sokhoun, Sophat
Sokhoun is a villager from a rural area located in the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She is 24 years old. She has two dependent daughters, all of whom are still in school. To support her family, she has been farming rice for seven years and supplementing her income by selling grocery items. Drought is the main challenge for her business.

Sokhoun has been with VisionFund for five cycles and completely paid back the previous loans. The other member is in her first cycle with VisionFund. Sokhoun is leading her group of two to apply for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy pesticides for protecting her crop yield. She hopes this loan will enable her to make her crop yield more productive and earn more income so as 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.
