Ket is 53 years old and a determined mother of four children: two married children and two single children. Ket devotes her full attention to a rice farming business to provide enough sustenance for her family. Since she was a widowed woman, she has tried harder in her current business to help the two younger children in their education. Despite the hardships, Ket aims to have them finished their high school level. Ket is happy that her married children usually send a small remittance home each month to support the family financially each month.
With this loan amount, Ket would like to purchase a motorcycle which will be used to support as transportation for both household use and business. This loan will help some of her children in travelling to their workplaces and reduce the expenses on transportation costs. Someday, Ket would like to keep growing her farming business during her entrepreneurship and help her children in their education.
