Mrs. Thorng is a local farmer who has been planting a variety of crops for a long time. She also relies on her husband’s income; he works in a rubber plantation, in Baray district. Mrs. Thorng is 50 and the mother of three kids, two of whom are employed in different jobs so they are also the core people for generating financial resources in the family.
Recently, Mrs. Thorng has needed more money to start growing her crops, but her savings are not enough to plant yet, so Mrs. Thorng has requested a loan to plant a potato crop.
