Rim is 51 years old and her husband, Leav, is 54 years old. They live in a village near the Mekong River about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1980 and have four children, including three sons and one daughter. Two of the children are married and live outside the family home, and the other two are in school.

Rim sells beef and vegetable soup at her home, while her husband is a vet. In addition, the couple grows rice. Rim is asking for her first loan in the amount of $1,000 to purchase seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides to maintain her farm.

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.
