Sam Aun
Sam Aun (in the photo), thirty-seven, and her husband, Borom, aged thirty-eight, live in a village about ten kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1998 and have four children: two sons and two daughters.

Sam Aun sells dessert, while her husband is a construction worker. She is asking for a loan of $1,000 to purchase a new motorbike for her husband to get to work. Because the old motorbike breaks often, it is costly to repair and uses more gasoline than newer motorbikes.

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.
