Sim (pictured above), age 51, is a lotus farmer. He has five daughters and three sons. Two of his children are garment workers, two graduated their degrees and have no work yet, and the other four attend school.

Sim asked for a loan to buy a motorbike for his children who are garment workers to drive to work. Because they don’t have their own transportation, they spend lots of money on the costs of the journey.

Additional Information


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.
