Serb's Group
In this Group: Serb, Sary, Sros
Serb is aged 60 years and living with her family members in a rural village located in the Pouk District of Siem Reap Province. She is married with three children.

Rice farming has been the main source for her family’s income for ten years. Besides farming, she raises four pigs and also sells grocery items in the local area to earn additional income for the family. The current business earns her about 50,000 KHR per day, and she manages to save about 30,000 KHR each day for future needs. Drought is the main challenge for her rice paddy business.

Serb’s group consists of three members, who are a first cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to request a loan with VisionFund of 1,000,000 KHR. Serb, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy pig feed for nourishing her pigs. She hopes to fatten her pigs so as to sell them for a good price to improve her family’s life.

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.
