The borrower has been involved in agriculture for eight years and grows mainly corn and potatoes. She sells her crops to the people at the local market. With the profits she earns from her sales, she helps cover family expenses. She lives with her family in her own home. When farm season is over, the borrower has no other work.
She is requesting a loan to buy farm supplies to help with her cultivating activity, such as fertilizers and seeds, so she can improve the cropland to earn more income. What she sells now is not enough to cover these expenses, so the loan will help her continue covering household expenses without limitation.
