Sok's Group
In this Group: Sok, Hem, Khoeun, Him
This group of borrowers consists of four people led by Mrs. S., who was born in 1962 and has been making brooms for more than two years from her home. Daily, she normally makes about 10 or 15 brooms which she sells to villagers and the market seller.

She is the mother of four children, two of whom are employed; all are single. Her husband, Nary, 50, is a local fisherman who currently catches fish from Tunle Sap Lake and sells them at the market. His ability to catch fish has recently been compromised due to aging equipment, so Mrs. S. is requesting a loan to buy more fishing tools.

The other three borrowers are:

P., a fisherman who needs a loan to buy nets and traps;

P., a fisherwoman who is requesting a loan to purchase fishing tools;

R., a fisherwoman who is requesting a loan to buy additional fishing equipment.

The borrowers all live in Chong Kneas Commune in Siem Reap Province.

About HKL

Hattha Kaksekar Limited is one of the largest and most successful microfinance institutions (MFIs) in Cambodia.

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.
