Mrs. Orn S. (pictured with her daughter), 43, and her husband, Mr. Ra Dul, 44, who live on an Island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 1993 and have four children; two sons and two daughters. One of her children is married and lives outside the family home. Two of the children are silk weavers and the youngest one studies in the local school.

Mrs. Orn has been a silk weaver for fifteen years, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to the middleman in the village, who then takes it to sell in Phnom Penh. Her husband is a construction worker.

Orn is requesting a loan of $100 to purchase silk materials for her weaving.

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.
