Tak is getting old, at her age of 62, but she is strong enough in physical work to continuously develop her farming. Tak wants to help all her children to live in a better lifestyle, through her efforts and sacrifices. Tak's photo was taken near a bicycle with a bamboo basket, from which her daughter operates her traveling sales business, selling foods, including vegetables and fish or meat. At the moment, Tak has only one child who relies on her income, while the other four already got married.
In order to give her family a comfortable situation, Tak has requested a loan of USD 1,000, to purchase a motorcycle for their transportation needs. Also, it can be used to provide a kind of taxi service to local people, for extra income. Tak appreciates all the help from Kiva lenders, and she is really confident to pay her loan back.
