Siv is a resident from Baray district, where she cultivates land to make a living. Siv is now 52 years old and the widowed mother of a grown daughter, who is already married.
Siv is a business-minded woman. With the revenue from her farming, she reinvested back into raising hogs and thus increased her household income. Siv has her daughter and son-in-law to help her in the two businesses.
Her experience makes clear that Siv has a strong commitment to work out her plans and make her businesses more viable. But because she lacks the money, she hasn't been able to make it possible. That is why she would like to acquire a loan of USD 700 to purchase a plowing machine to maintain the rice field.
