Sakhorn's Group
In this Group: Sakhorn, Leam, Noeurn
Sakhorn is from Moung Russey district, in Battambang province. She is 50 years old and a mother of five children, two of whom still rely on her. One is in school, and one is too young for schooling. Her entire household depends solely on agribusiness, specifically rice-growing and pig-raising. She has been occupied in this work for more than 10 years, and currently it returns her about 42,000 KHR per day.

Since joining with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), Sakhorn has managed to upgrade her living conditions, and she has repaid her past loan with success. She and her fellow borrowers are each seeking the same loan amount, 1,400,000 KHR apiece. Sakhorn will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and seed for her farmland. She hopes that her business will improve and enable her to support the family, on time.

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.
