Sokhors (pictured here) is 30 years old. She and her husband Sophat, who is 39 years old, have been married since 2001. They have two daughters: one is in school and another one is still young. The family lives in a village approximately 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.
Sokhors is a tailor, while her husband is a driver. She is asking for a loan of 1,500 USD to replace her husband's motorbike because the old one breaks down and uses more gasoline.
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.
