Samoun, 41 year old, is a farmer with her husband. Their income is $6 per day. She has three children. All of the children are studying. Every month she has to spend $32 on food, $20 on school fees, $10 transportation, and $15 on other expenses. She would like to request a loan of $500 to buy a rice-throwing machine for planting the villager's rice seed to get some income. In the future, she wants to buy a hand tractor for doing plowing of the villager's farm if she has enough money. For her children, she will try to support them to study and at least finish high school.
