Sokhon is unmarried and lives in the Kror Kor district of Pursat province.
This loan will be the third loan for Sokhon and her co-borrower through Kiva partner VisionFund. She is the leader of the group. She repaid her past loans fully and promptly, and the investment from these loans has improved her standard of living.
For this cycle, Sokhon and the other member of the group are requesting 1,000,000 KHR and 1,200,000 KHR, respectively. Sokhon will use her loan portion to plow her farmland and to buy potash for her crops.
Her goal is to grow her rice in a timely manner and receive a good yield.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
