Sothy's Group
In this Group: Sothy, Chantha, Chanthari
Sothy, 26, is a married mother of two dependent children who are too young for schooling. Livng in a rural village of the Pursat province's Sampov Meas district, Sothy is a rice farmer. She has three hectares of farmland and has been in this primary business for about four years while her husband is a paid worker to help generate more income for the family.

Sothy has been a member of VisionFund for two cycles already and she completely paid back the past two loans which have helped her better support her business. She is now leading a group of three who live in the same area to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to hire laborers to prepare her land for cultivation. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income so as to fulfill her dream of running a grocery store.

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.
