In this Group: Sor , Srem
Sor is 54 and lives with her family members in a rural village located in the Sa Ang district of Kandal Province. She is a widow with three children. She has been farming rice for 34 years. The current business earns her about 20,000 KHR per day, and she manages to save about 8,000 KHR each day for future needs. Sor has been with VisionFund for four cycles, while the other member of the group has been with VisionFund for three cycles. Sor successfully used the loans from VisionFund to improve her family’s living conditions, and now she is confident of making a better living. Sor, who is the leader, is applying for a loan from VisionFund to buy fertilizer, pesticides and seeds for her farm. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from the current business, so as to improve her standard of living.

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.
