Sarom's Group
In this Group: Sarom , Thouch, Vanthy, Sokunthea
A hardworking farmer residing in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Sarom is 63 years old and blessed with seven children. Currently, only one child is still in school.

She earns a living from her three hectares of rice farming, with which she has been engaged for 31 years and is able to earn about 11,100 KHR per day.

Her past loan was the first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), which she has fully repaid with success. Her living conditions improved, which is the positive outcome of her past loan.

Now, she is in a group of four to apply for a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion on buying potash for her crop. She believes that she can expand her business and improve on last year and earn more income to sustain her way of life.

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.
