Nao is a determined and responsible woman who strives to work hard to give her family a better quality of life. She is 45 years old and has only one child. In the rainy season, she devotes at least eight hours daily working in her rice paddy to ensure a fruitful harvest. However, she doesn’t possess enough land to grow each year. She had just rented a piece of land from local residents in order to maintain a high rate of her rice products and gain more income.
Due to financial difficulties, she is asking for a loan of USD 500 to pay land fees. She realizes that this financial assistance will surely make improvements in the business and earn her good revenue. Her dream is to educate her child up to college, so he might be successful in his lifetime.
