Srey Moch is married with two children, a daughter and a son. She learned to weave silk from her neighbor when she was 15 years old. She later trained her husband to weave as well. She is currently producing silk products and selling groceries. She has borrowed loans from MAXIMA before. The loans have low interest compared to local money lenders and are easier to repay. Before borrowing loans from MAXIMA, her family had two looms. After receiving the loans, she has been able to purchase more looms and is hiring four women in the village to produce silk products. The loans will be used to buy silk materials, sewing thread, and also to rennovate the house and construct a bathroom. The loans are helping Mrs. Moch's family to improve their living conditions and she is glad to be able to employ other women in the village.
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.
