Touch is 58 years old, married and has five children. To make a living, Touch is involved in a rice farming business to generate income. Also, she owns and operates a small store located in a local school, where her husband is a professional teacher. She sells snacks, sweets and beverages to students, earning a suitable income, which she spends on food and allowances for her children.
To improve her business, she is now asking for a loan to purchase snacks, sweets, biscuits and other merchandise to sell in her store. She hopes that the loan will enable her to make improvements to this business and make it aviable source of income. Touch would be glad if her requested loan amount was approved.
