Chhon (in the photo) is a widow with 3 children, 1 son and 2 daughters. Her son is married and lives separately from home and both daughters are garment workers.

Chhon is a weaver for almost twenty years because it’s a traditional profession. She is asking for a loan to buy a motorbike for her son, who is married so that he can drive to work. Because he does not have his own transportation, he needs to spend lots of money to take motor taxis.

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.
