Sokrin's Group
In this Group: Sokrin, Sarim, Sreyneang, Mach
Sokrin is aged 41 years and married with six children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. She and her husband have worked very hard for 16 years to support their big family by selling grocery items, farming rice and planting lotus in the local area. The current business earns them about 21,000 KHR per day and they manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day after expenses.

This is the first loan for Sokrin with VisionFund. Now she is leading her group of four to seek a loan. She is going to use her portion to buy more lotus plants to grow. She hopes her lotus will grow healthfully so as to sell it for a good price.

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.
