SAMIC MFI organizes health, social and business trainings in Cambodia

SAMIC is a microfinance institution that is working for poverty reduction and improving Cambodian poor people’s living condition.

By starting as credit program of an NGO named CHC (Cambodian Health Committee) in 1994, SAMIC has contributed, so far so good, in the improving of financial access of many rural and poor people in Cambodia.

Alongside, SAMIC provided non-financial services to its clients and non-clients on public health, financial literacy, family, planning, food packaging and agriculture training sometimes with the assistance of its partners, like for example SBFIC (Savings Banks Foundation for International Cooperation) or CARD Mutually Reinforcing Institutions.

Discover few examples of trainings organized by SAMIC:

1. Food packaging training

SAMIC has conducted the training of food packaging in nine places like in Siem Reap Province, Kampong Cham Province, Kampong Thom Province, Takeo Province, Kampot Province, Kep Province, and Krong Preh Sihanouk Province where about 800 clients and non-clients of the institution, highly interested, have participated in this course.

2. Credit with Education (CwE) training

SAMIC has conducted this CwE training to all its clients about family planning, financial literacy and health.

3. Agriculture Training

SAMIC also organized agriculture training for its clients to help them improve their business in agriculture like husbandry, crop plantation and rice plantation.
