Mrs. Norng P. is highly skilled at planting crops in the village. For extra profit, she also buys mature crops from other farmers to resell. She has another partner in her husband, who appears in the photo. He built a workshop and has some tools that he uses to provide vehicle repair services in front of his house. Mrs. Norng P. has four children. Three of her children are married and live independently, and the other one is single.
Norng P.’s husband is very busy at his trade because there are a lot of clients who need his service, but he lacks essential tools to perform his service, so Norng P. has requested a loan to buy more tools. She hopes to use any remains from the loan to increase the financing of her rice sales enterprise.
