Sareth's Group
In this Group: Sareth, Saran, Tuoch
Sareth is 30 years old and married. She has one son. She is a rural farmer who lives in the area of the Thmor Koul district, Cambodia. Rice farming is the main source of her family's income, and she has been farming on three-hectare farmland for five years. The main challenge for her family's business is the lack of working capital to buy fertilizer for her rice field.

This is the second loan for Sareth's group, which consists of three members who live in the same village. The first loan from VisionFund has helped Sareth extend her farmland to increase crop production. To cope with the current challenge, she is leading her group to apply for another loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she wants to buy fertilizer for her farmland. With this loan, she hopes to further increase crop production and sell her rice to make a good 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.
