Mr. Yan S., 37, and his wife, Mrs. My Mon, 40, live in a small village off of National Road Two about eighteen kilometers south of Phnom Penh. They were married in 1983 and have four children: two sons and two daughters. Three of their children are in school locally, and the other one is still young and stays at home.

Mr. Yan S. has been a Remoque Motor Taxi driver for seventeen years. Remoque is a motorbike with a trailer at the back. He carries people and goods from his village to Phnom Penh City. His wife has been a garment factory worker for six years. The couple is in the process of building their new house and lacks the money to finish it. So, Yan is requesting a loan of US$1000 to combine with his own money to purchase materials to build a new house.

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.
