We loan because...
We support Chamroeun Microfinance in their mission to improve the livelihoods, skills, and self-confidence of poor families in Cambodia by providing responsible microfinance and complementary socio-economic services.

Chamroeun established in 2006 by Entrepreneurs du Monde as an NGO with a focus on serving the very poor in Phnom Penh by providing a variety of services. In 2011 they officially registered as a Microfinance Institution, and have since grown to 21 branches in 16 provinces around Cambodia.

Chamroeun aims to create an environment for the vulnerable and poorest of the poor to have access to financial services with small loan sizes adapted to their small business contexts. They also complement their financial services through a range of socio-economic services.

Their goal is the maximization of social impacts. This is accomplished through no dividend distribution, decreased product pricing, and increased product diversification to address vulnerabilities
