Sa Em
Sa Em (pictured above) and her husband, Koem Cheth, live on an island on the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have two children: one son and one daughter.

Sa Em is a weaver. Additionally, she buys additional silk fabric from her fellow villagers and transports it to sell in other provinces. She hopes to expand her business by purchasing more finished silk fabrics for resale. That’s why she is applying for another loan in the amount of $1,000.

MAXIMA Microfinance Plc 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.
