Sokhon, age 42, is a garment worker. She lives in a village about 35 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. She has two sons: one is a policeman and another one attends school.
Nowadays, Sokhon has a motorbike (in the photo) which is used by the family, and she wants to buy one more motorbike for her son who is a policeman to drive to work. That’s why she decided to apply for a loan.
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.
