Sokchea's Group
In this Group: Sokchea, Sopheap
Sokchea is a villager of the Mongkul Borey district of Banteay Mean Chey Province, Cambodia. As the 37-year-old mother of four children who need her care as they are still in school, she has been engaged in rice cropping as the primary source of income. Additionally, she also uses her spare time to add more income through working for others for a fee and selling coconuts. From the current business, which she has been in for 5 years, she can earn about 25,000 KHR. Sokchea's group consists of two female members; she is an eight-loan-cycle client and her member is a third-loan-cycle client. The previous loans have improved her business progressively and enabled her to buy a motorbike to assist her coconut selling business. Now, she and her group member are seeking a new loan. She will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer for her rice field and the remaining amount to pay for a harvesting fee. She hopes to gain more income so as to make more income.

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.
