Thavin is 35 years old and sells grocery items at home. She lives in a village about 35 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. She has three daughters and her husband is a construction worker.
Thavin hopes to expand her grocery inventory, so she applied for a loan to help her capital. She will use capital from the loan to buy more grocery items.
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.
