To help support her family, Phalla is woven silk into cloth, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to a man in their village, who then sells in Phnom Penh's markets. Meanwhile, Sam-Ol works as a salesman.
Phalla and Sam-Ol have recently moved into a new house. Phalla is requesting a loan of $1,200 U.S. dollars to build a fence around their home, and also purchase more silk for weaving.
About MAXIMAMAXIMA 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.
