Sarin (in the photo) has been running a grocery store for three years, while her husband, Marakat is a soldier. They have four children-two sons and two daughters. Two are in school and other two are still young. The family lives in a village about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh City.
Sarin is asking for a loan of $1,000 to buy a new motorbike because the old one breaks down very often. She will use another part of the loan to expand her grocery store by buying additional grocery items.

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.
