Mrs. Torn E. and her husband, Mr. Korn Kim, live in a small village along National Road Number 5, about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They have been married since 1969 and have five children: four sons and one daughter. Two of their sons are married and live outside the family home, one is a farmer and the other son attends school. Their daughter is a garment factory worker. Torn is not in the photo, her husband was available instead.

Torn is a farmer; she grows rice on her farmland. Mr. Korn Kim has been a fisherman since 1979. He catches fish in the river near his house and sells the fish in his village. She is asking for a loan of $1,200 to purchase a rice threshing machine to use when harvesting season comes.

Additional Information


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.
