Sokhoern's Group
In this Group: Sokhoern, Chiv
Originally from a rural village of the Kror Kor district of Prusat province, Sokhoern is a 33-year-old mother of two children, both of whom are dependent on her and still in school. Farming rice and making palm juice have been the main sources of her family’s income for the past 10 years. The current business earns her about 23,000 KHR per day, of which she manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day after expenses.

Sokhoern’s group consists of two members who live in the same area. The leader of her group, Sokhoern is going to use her portion to buy an oxcart to help in her farming business. She hopes to get a high yield from the rice paddy in order to improve her standard of living.

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.
