As a responsible mother, Huy operates a rice farming business to generate income and is also involved in raising poultry at home. She is 77 and a mother of five adult children. Huy and her husband have a good cooperation in managing their rice farming with support from their sons and daughters. Having been involved in this occupation for years, she is able to make a net profit of $4.00 per day.
Huy has been a client of HKL for five loan cycles already. The prior loans she had were a great help to contribute to the development of her farming business as well as her living standards.
She has applied for another loan to buy a motorcycle, which will be used to serve her household's transportation needs. She believes that the loan will help her to improve her living status. In the future, she hopes to make her business grow and become profitable.
