Aun (pictured here) sells kitchenware and household tools. She buys them from Takhmao market, approximately five kilometers from her house and sells them in her village. In addition, she is also a rice farmer.
Aun is asking for a loan of $700. She will use a part of the loan to purchase seeds, fertilizer and pesticide to maintain her rice farm, and also buy more kitchenware and household tools for resale.
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.
