Nem, 56, sells Onsorm. Onsorm is a kind of Cambodian cake that has rice, coconut, soybean and pork in the middle, and is cooked by steaming. Nem makes Onsorm on her own and sells it in the market about 10 kilometers from her house.
Nem's husband is a rice farmer. Nem is asking for a loan of $1,000 to help with her husband’s farming business by purchasing another ox for plowing farmland.

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.
