Sdoeurng's Group
In this Group: Sdoeurng, Makara
Sdoeurng is 42-year-old single lady who lives in the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. She survives her daily cost of living through rice cropping, watermelon growing, and fish catching, which she has been doing for 10 years. Now, she is in need of some working capital for supporting her crop husbandry. Hence, she formed a group of two as first-time borrowers to apply for a micro loan in amount of 1,000,000 KHR each with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. For Sdoeurng as a group leader, she is going to use her loan portion to buy fertilizer, insecticide and seeds and to pay the plowing fee for her farmland. She hopes this loan will help her business promptly and return her a good yield so that she can double her income and 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.
