Sophal, 44, is a widow with two children, a son and daughter, who are garment factory workers. The family lives in a village about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh City. She earns an income by selling traditional Khmer desserts in front of a garment factory.

Because he does not have his own transportation, Sophal’s son needs to share a motorbike with his neighbors to get to the factory. For this reason she is asking for her first loan of 1,500 USD from MAXIMA to buy a motorbike for her son to drive to work.
