Samros' Group
In this Group: Samros, Pisey, Sou
Sour is 42 years old, married and mother of seven children, six of whom depend upon her.

To make a living, she and her husband have been farming rice for 22 years and they supplement their family’s income by planting rubber trees. They sometimes work for others for a fee.

Sour’s group consists of three women who live in the same village of the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province.

She is her second loan cycle, while the other two members are seeking their first loans from Kiva partner, VisionFund.

Sour, who is the leader, will user her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield so as to make a better 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.
