Sorphorn's Group
In this Group: Sorphorn, Kimleang, Sokunthea
Sorphorn is 32 years old and married with one daughter who is now too young to attend school. She lives with her family in a rural village of the Moung Russey district of Cambodia. To make a living, she has been farming rice on two hectares of farmland for several years, and she supplements her income by running a grocery store in front of her house. The main challenge for her family's business is flooding during raining season and the lack to water to grow her rice.

Sorphorn's group consists of three members and she has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles. Having completely paid back the loans with VisionFund, the loans have helped her make the living better. With her current business, she can earn up to 24,000 KHR per day to spend for daily expenses. She is now leading her group to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and grocery items for her business. She hopes this loan will enable her business to prosper and improve her standard of living.

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.
