Mrs. Ngem R., 66, is a widow with two children and works growing vegetables on her plot of land. She earns around $1.50 a day. One child is a farmer and the other one is a student. After classes, her daughter also helps her look after the plants. She would like to request a loan from Kiva to purchase a water pump to water the crops in the dry season when there is little water available. (Mrs. Ngem R. is pictured with her daughter)
