San has been continuing to work in her occupation as a rice cultivator. She is a 61-year-old widow and has eight children; three among them are employed to financially support the family. Aside from the farming business, San is skilled in making things from clay such as piggy banks, which she sometimes sells for money.
San reported that things went well for her family with the previous loans she had from HKL. This loan will be her sixth loan cycle, which she is seeking in order to buy a motorcycle for her children's commuting. It is also for buying wooden material for constructing a store in front of her house, where she will sell her piggy banks to local people. She is very pleased and thankful for the opportunity provided, as she is growing and improving her living status and business.
