Savorn's Group
In this Group: Savorn, Ren, Chanret, Thavy
Savorn, 40, lives in a rural village in the Sampov Meas district of the Pursat Province. She is a married mother of four children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. Her family’s income is derived from leasing a two-hectare rice paddy and planting bean. She has been making a living from this business for 22 years. From her current business, she can earn about 37,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day and save about 10,000 KHR per day for future needs.

Savorn’s group of four includes two members who live in the same village. This is her first group loan with VisionFund. As the leader of this group, she will use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes to produce more rice and bean to make a better living and keep her child in school.

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.
