Mr. Musa K., 41 and his wife, Mrs. Maismes Sos, 39, live along National Road Number Six, about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1989 and have 5 children: 3 sons and 2 daughters. One of their sons is a construction worker; the other children are still young and attend school.

Musa and his wife are fish sellers. They fish in the Mekong River and the lake near their village and sell the fish in the local market. Musa wants a boat motor; it will make it easier for him to move his boat from one place to another. Hence he is requesting his first loan of $500 to purchase a boat motor for his fishing business.

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.
