Mrs. C. Yean, 59, and her husband have been married since 1964. They have seven children--three sons and four daughters. Two of her sons were married and living separate houses and the other son is a tailor. Three of her daughters are weavers and the other one is selling sweets in her village. Yean and her family are living in a village along Mekong River about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh. She has been a silk weaver since 1964. It's a skill she learned from her sister-in-law. Her husband is a farmer.

She is requesting her second loan from MAXIMA in the amount of $1000. She will use this loan to purchase silk material for continuing her silk production business. As Yean has successfully repaid previous loans, we feel sure she will repay this new loan as well.

Additional Information


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.
