Sas' Group
In this Group: Sas, Tiver
Sas, 49, is a rice farmer in a rural village of the Pursat province’s Kror Kor district of Cambodia. She has three children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school in the local area. Besides farming rice on 1.5 hectares of farmland, she sometimes works for others for a fee to earn additional income in order to better support her family. Sas has been in this business for several years. From the current business, she is able to earn about 30,000 KHR per day. She saves about 15,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Sas is in her first cycle loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to apply for the loan. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and to pay for labor fees. Through this loan, she hopes for a high yield from her farming business, so she can continue to improve her standard of living and keep her child in school.

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.
