Mr. Sochea has been married since 1979, and has 2 sons and a daughter. He has been in the business of driving a remork (a motor taxi with a carriage at the back) for more than 15 years. He drives workers from the village to a garment factory site. His wife raises pigs and cows. Neither Mr. Sochea nor his wife have finished primary school, and all of their children are currently working at the garment factory.
Mr. Sochea needs to borrow US$500 from MAXIMA to purchase a new carriage for his motor taxi and to buy a cow. With his remork and his wife's animal-raising business, Mr. Sochea will be able to repay the loan to MAXIMA.

MAXIMA Mikroheranhvatho is a Cambodian microfinance institution founded in 2000 to help low-income rural and urban people and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) access financial services. Sustainable access to credit helps to create jobs and enables business owners improve their living conditions, educate their children, provide health care to their families, and more. It also enables the rural poor to remain at home with their families, rather than moving to city centers in search of employment.
