San is 32 years old and married with a child who is attending school. He dedicates himself to farming, working around 8 hours a day during harvest season. He has been farming for almost 8 years on his own farm where he mainly grows rice for consumption. San also takes time to work in the construction industry to supplement his wages.
This loan that he needs will permit him to buy a motorcycle for personal use, buy a cow, and for the maintenance of the rice field. He says this loan would allow him and his family members better transportation and help increase his rice output. Having many years of experience, San dreams to have enough building tools and laborers to begin a construction project for himself. He believes that he can provide a better quality of life for his family by strengthening the business.
