Mrs. Sarorn S. (pictured here), is a widow with four sons and two daughters. Four of them are married and live outside the family home. One son attends university and another daughter is also a widow living with her. They are living on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Mrs. Sarorn S. is a silk weaver and a tailor. She is old, but still strong and works hard. She hopes to support her son's further education, so she is asking for a loan of $1,200 to pay school fees for her son who is attending university. She will use a part of her loan to buy silk materials to continue her weaving 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.
