Saren's Group
In this Group: Saren, Thouk
Saren, 36 years old, is a rural villager from the Sangke district. She earns a living by growing cassava as her main source of income. She has been in this business for 12 years. For additional income, her husband works for others for a fee. She has five children to take care of.
Saren’s group consists of two members who are both female. Saren is on her sixth loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She has completely paid back the previous loans which have helped her better support her family. Now leading her group to apply for a new loan, Saren will use her portion to buy fertilizer and seed for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yields and sell her harvest for a good price to make a better living.

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.
