Sereyny (pictured here) is 41 years old and her husband, Sokhan, is 52 years old. They live in a village outside of Phnom Penh City. They have two sons and one daughter; two are in school and one is still young.

Sereyny is a high school teacher. Her husband is a musician and also operates a business renting out sets of musical instruments to villagers in his village and the nearby province.

One particular set of musical instruments is usually called Ork Kes in Khmer. The people in the countryside prefer to rent Ork Kes to entertain in weddings, some religious ceremonies, and especially before and during Khmer New Year. Most people rent Karaoke to sing and dance both in the pagoda and inside their houses, and now there are lots of weddings and religious ceremonies.

Sereyny is applying for her first loan in the amount of $1,000 to assist in her husband’s musician business by buying a piano and materials needed for his business.

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.
