Prich is 32 years old and a loving mother, who is responsible for three school-age children. She was born on the family farm and got a low level of education due to the family’s financial constraints. Prich doesn’t want her children to follow her path of life, so she will strive to work hard to avoid their lack of education. Prich has been involved in the business of raising pigs and cultivating agricultural crops as the major source of the family’s income. With her many years of experience and help from her husband, Prich is able to stabilize her current businesses and make consistent profits for her children’s education.
Prich would like to borrow her first cycle loan from lenders to pay for labor costs incurred in transplanting rice and purchase additional piglets to raise. She believes that through her hardships, patience, and the help of the loan, she will be able to achieve her desire and experience a quality life someday.
