Saroen's Group
In this Group: Saroen, Soknim
A villager from a rural area located in the Kampong Cham province’s Ponhea Krek district, Saroen is 63 years old and married. She earns a living through raising pigs and distilling alcohol. Having been in this business for 10 years, she is able to earn about 49,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day to meet the family’s needs.

This is the third loan for Saroen with VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, Saroen is going to use her portion to buy pig feeds for nourishing her pigs. She hopes to fatten her pigs, so as to sell them for a good price to improve her standard of 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.
