Sokthoeurm's Group
In this Group: Sokthoeurm, Khim
Sokthoeurm is 26 years old and a resident of the Koh Sotin district of Kampong Cham province. She is a young mother who needs to support her little son as her son is too young for schooling. For the sake of her family, she raises chickens and works for others for a fee. This business generates about 26,700 KHR per day after six years of involvement in the current business. This is the first loan for Sokthoeurm with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has formed a group of two to get a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy piglets and to make a pigpen. She hopes that this purchase enables her to start up a new business so that she can make more income for her family.

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.
