Mrs. Thach H. (pictured here) and her husband, Mr. Thach Try, live along National Road Number One about seventeen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They have been married for more than twenty-five years and have six children: two sons and four daughters.
Thach has been selling vegetables for more than ten years. Her husband has been a mason for more than twelve years. She hopes to continue expanding her business, so she is asking for a loan in the amount of 1,200 USD to purchase additional vegetables 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.
