Mrs. Sreypov B. (pictured with her husband and sons) and her husband, Mr. Savit Uk, have been married since 1991 and have five sons. One of them is a carpenter, two attend school and the other two are still young. The family lives along national road number one about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.
Sreypov has been selling corn for more than eight years and she sells mango as well. Her husband has been driving a motor taxi for more than six years. She hopes to continue expanding her business, so she is asking for a loan of $1,000 to purchase mango under contract for resale.
MAXIMA Microfinance Plc 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.
