Sin C., age 36, grows rice and earns around $2 of profit a day. Her husband has a business collecting the villagers' harvest and plowing their farmland. On average, he makes about $3 of profit per day. This couple has three children and all of them are students.
Mrs. Sin C. would like a loan from Kiva to purchase a hand-tractor for her husband. This will allow family to use the hand-tractor to earn more profit to support the family. (Mrs. Sin C. is pictured with her husband.)
