Mrs. Savin P. and her husband, Mr. Yoin Meas, live on an Island of the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1997 and have three children: two sons and one daughter. Two of the children are in school and one is still young.

Savin has been a silk weaver for more than nine years. Besides weaving, she also started a new business selling finished silk fabric. She buys some of the finished silk fabric from the weavers in her village and transports it to sell in other provinces far away from her house.

Savin hopes to expand her new business so that she will be able to earn much more income to better support her family. So she is requesting a loan of $200 to purchase additional finished silk fabrics to sell.

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.
