Sun, aged 43, is a farmer living in the Baray district with her husband and two dependent children. Another child lives far away with her new family.
Sun has been farming for almost 20 years, primarily planting and harvesting rice to sell each season. Her customers are local traders and market vendors. Sun always hopes for financial stability, to provide basic necessities for the whole family.
To achieve this, she needs to improve her crop production annually to earn higher profits upon harvest. For this reason, she is asking for a loan of 1,500 USD to buy extra farmland. Through this expansion, she hopes to obtain an abundant harvest and keep earning funds for the future education of her children, as well as for emergencies.
