Mr. Thourn O. (in the photo) and his wife, Mrs. Onn Bou, have been married since 1988 and have five children -- four sons and one daughter. The family lives on an island in Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.
Thourn is a wooden-house constructor. His business is doing well, and he hopes to respond his customers' needs. Therefore, Thourn is asking for another loan of $1,000 to purchase construction materials to work.
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.
