Pisey (in the photo) is a weaver and her husband is a farmer. In addition, she also assists in her husband’s farming. They have two young children and they have one young son.
Pisey had asked and used her previous loan to purchase seeds, fertilizer and pesticide (www.kiva.org/lend/354738).
She hopes to continue her farming business. That’s why she applied for another loan in the amount of $1,000. She will also use a part of the loan to buy water pumping chine to spray her farm.
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.
