Mrs. Vanna N., age 36, and her husband, Mr. Mov Say, age 38, have been married since 1992 and have three children: one son and two daughters, all of them are in school.
Vanna and her husband are silk weavers. They sell their finished products to a middleman who then takes them to sell in Phnom Penh market. Because the silk weaving business is their main source of income, Vanna is asking for another loan (see previous loans here and here) in the amount of $600 to purchase silk materials for continuing her business.
In the photo, Mrs. Vanna is not shown with her loom because the loom was set up inside her house.
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.
