Saveun (pictured here) and her husband are rice, potato and sugar cane farmers. They live in a village across the Mekong River about seventeen kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have three sons and three daughters.
She hopes to continue her farming business. This is why she has applied for another loan in the amount of $300.
MAXIMA Microfinance Plc 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.
