Chek (pictured at home) is 43 years old and her husband, Srey, is 42 years old. They live in a suburb about 25 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They have been married for 25 years and have 6 children - 3 sons and 3 daughters. One of their children is married and lives outside the family home, three are garment workers and two attend school.

Chek is a farmer and her husband is a traditional musician who does construction when he is free. Cambodian people prefer to hire traditional musicians to entertain at weddings and religious ceremonies. Since there are now lots of weddings and religious ceremonies, Chek is asking for her first loan of $1,000 to purchase a motorcycle for commuting.

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.
