Sokhen, age 31, is a garment worker, while her husband, Vuthy, age 37, has full-time employment. They have been married since 2007 and have two sons, the eldest of whom attends school. They live in a village about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Because of the costs involved in frequently repairing their old motorbike, Sokhen is requesting a loan of $500 to add to her own money to buy a new motorbike for her husband to commute to work.

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.
