In this Group: Savat , Sopheap, Sophany
Savat is 50 years old and a father of four children. He lives in Thmor Koul district, of Battambang province. His main sources of income are a pig-raising business and a rice-selling business. He has been involved in the current business for 20 years.

Savat has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for eight loan cycles, including this one. He has fully repaid his past seven loans, and he used them with success, to upgrade his living conditions. Now, he leads a group of three people to get a new loan. He and one of his co-borrowers are seeking 1,400,000 KHR each, while the remaining member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. As the leader, Savat will spend his loan portion to buy pig feed, with which to fatten his pigs. He hopes to raise his pigs healthily, so he will get a good price for them when he sells.

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.
