Srey Touch (who we see in the photo), is 28 years old and a garment worker who lives in a suburb of Phnom Penh City. She has three daughters — two who attend school and another who is too young to enroll. Her husband is a moto kangbei taxi driver. In the past, these vehicles were commonly known as "tuk tuks" (a three-wheeled motorcycle taxi), but they are now officially called "moto kangbei" by government authorities. Srey Touch is asking for a loan to buy a motorbike for commuting to work because she does not have her own transportation.
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.
