Her husband sells large amounts of ice to a variety of local businesses and typically makes US$3.80 each day. Lun S. would like to increase her daily income to better support her young family, by investing in her vegetable business. She has asked for a loan of US$1200 to purchase a larger piece of property from which she can harvest yams. In this type of farming system, she will not actually own the land, but will pay to harvest a portion of the land and sell it in the market to make a profit.
She appreciates the opportunities that this loan provides for her family and is looking forward to reaping the benefits of her investment.
