Sokha's Group
In this Group: Sokha, Ly, Chreb, Luot, Chenda
Sokha is a villager from the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, where rice farming is a common enterprise for villagers. He is 33 years old and a father of two sons. Like his neighbors, he does rice cropping to overcome his family's daily hardships. Rice farming has been his only business for eight years, and it earns him about 27,800 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day.

Sokha's Group consists of five members, four female and one male, and Sokha is the group's leader. This is his fourth loan cycle. He has paid back his loan with success, relieving his family burden and improving the family's livelihood. The total loan amount for the entire group is 3,500,000 KHR. Sokha will spend his portion, 300,000 KHR, to purchase fertilizer and insecticide. He hopes to double his yield and sell his rice crop at a high price so that he can earn more income to sustain his 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.
