Saron's Group
In this Group: Saron, Ny
Saron, 46 years old, is married and lives in a thatched roof house in a rural village in the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. She and her husband have two children, one of whom is still in school. For almost ten years, Saron and her husband have earned a living through farming rice on 2 hectares of farmland and planting cassava on 3.5 hectares of farmland, earning approximately 40,000 KHR per day from the current business. She can save about 20,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Saron has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for four cycles while the other member has been for one cycle. She completely repaid the past loans which have helped her relieve her family’s burden. Now she is leading her group of two to request 2,000,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR respectively. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use the remainder to pay for labor costs. Saron hopes to make more crop yields and sell them for a good price so as to improve her lifestyle.

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.
