Context:

Cambodia’s economy has been growing rapidly since the mid- 1990s. The weight of the primary sector in the economy remains significant despite the increase in the tertiary sector following the advent of tourism. Fishing and agriculture alone employ 70% of the population.

The Institution:

Chamroeun is a Cambodian microfinance institution with social purpose writ large in its business model. It provides financial services to the poorest segments of society, who are excluded from the offer of more commercial microfinance institutions.

Impact:

In addition to the financial component, Chamroeun also offers a range of training and economic, social and personal support services in order to maximize the impact of credit and provide effective help to very poor families.
