Sokhong's Group
In this Group: Sokhong, Seam, Noeurt, Sek
Sokong, age 39 and single, is a vendor who purchases recycled items and fruit, including bananas and coconut, for resale. She has been involved with this business since she was 29 years old. With this loan, she is in her seventh cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan that she has fully paid back has maintained her living status in good shape.

For this cycle, she has three other persons joining the same group, and Sokong is the leader. Now, she is asking for 1,000,000 KHR. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy recycled items, bananas, and coconut for resale. She hopes this loan will replenish her selling items on time and get back to her a good income.

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.
