Sokhorn's Group
In this Group: Sokhorn, Sokhoeurn
Sokhorn, 22 and mother of one child, is a rural villager from Battambang province. For her family, rice farming is the main source for her to earn income which she has done for around five years.

Now, she is a group leader of two. She and her co-borrower have been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for three past loans. Sokhorn has fully repaid the past loans which have upgraded the living conditions of her family at a gradual pace.

Now, they are seeking for the same loan amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer and to pay plowing fees for her cropping. She hopes to collect good yield, better than before, and to earn increase 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.
