Srim's Group
In this Group: Srim, Moeurn, Sokha
Srim is 36 years old and a mother of two schoolgirls residing in Prey Chor District of Kampong Cham Province. The one and a half hectares of farmland where her crop is growing is the main source of income for her family. She is able to earn about 18,300 KHR per day from the current business, which she has been working with for 15 years. For her, shortages of water supply and working capital to support her farmland are the main business challenges.

Srim is not a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), as she has been with VisionFund for two past cycles already. She has managed to support her family better and expand her business on a bigger scale as well as to send her children to school.

Now, she is seeking 1,400,000 KHR, the same amount as requested by her co-borrowers who are in the same group of three female members. As a leader, she is going to spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer and to pay for transplanting and water pumping for her rice farm. She hopes to gain more yield in order to make more income for her family.

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.
