Kundy (in the photo) is a motorbike repairman and a blacksmith. His wife Sreytauch is now a weaver. They live on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 2007 and have two young sons.
Kundy hopes to continue his business, so he is applying for another loan in the amount of $500 to purchase additional motorbike spare parts.
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.
