Ulato is a 67-year-old woman with three children. Her plantation is her family's only means of support, and she has been running it for a long time. She sells her crops at the market while her sons do manual labour in the fields. She goes to the market with her produce three times a week and makes a profit of $124 a per day. She appreciates the help she has received from previous loans, and hopes to use her new loan to increase the output of her plantation.
