Saran's Group
In this Group: Saran, Sitha
A mother of seven children and in her early 50s, Saran is a resident from Moung Russey district of Battambang province, where she grows her one hectare of rice cropping and one hectare of sesame farming. This is the business that she has had for 11 years. This is the fourth micro loan for Saran and her joint borrower in a group of two. She has repaid her past loan with success, and it has enabled her to improve her lifestyle from before. Now, she and her co-borrower are seeking 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer and insecticide and to pay for labor costs. She strongly believes that she can gain a good yield, better than last year.

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.
