Sanghem's Group
In this Group: Sanghem, Theary
Sanghem, a 61-year-old local cassava farmer residing in Memot district of Kampong Cham province, is married and has nine children. She has been involved in her current business for 14 years.

This will be the fifth loan for Sanghem’s group, which consists of two female borrowers seeking a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each from VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Her past loans have enabled Sanghem to support her business, and she will spend her new loan portion to pay the weeding fee for her cassava.

She hopes to gain a good yield from her cassava and make more 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.
