Sas' Group
In this Group: Sas, Chum, Pes
A villager from the Phnom Kror Vanh district of Pursat Province, Sas is 58 years old and a widowed mother of four children. She secures her daily cost of living through rice farming, fish raising and grocery selling. She has been with these businesses for 20 years and they enable her to earn up to 27,600 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day.

Sas has never been with VisionFund before; the same as her other two co-borrowers who are in the same group of three members. She and one of her fellow group members are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each, while her remaining co-member is applying for 500,000 KHR. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her rice crop and to buy additional grocery items such as soap, food ingredient, canned food, etc. She hopes this purchase will help her to support her businesses on time and get her back to a good 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.
