Mrs. Yean S. V. has raised crops since 2000 — a skill she learned from her grandmother when she was young. She is now married and has two school-aged children. Her husband works in the farm frequently alongside her. She has had great success as she is able to plant crops at least twice a year following both rainy and dry seasons. The coming rainfall is good for growing but Yean S. V. doesn’t have enough capital so she is looking for a loan to plant potatoes.
