She purchases flowers from a farmer in her village to sell in Phnom Penh.

Miss Sopheap and her family live along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of the nearby Mekong approximately fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. She hopes that her business will enable her brothers to continue their studies to the highest level possible.

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.
