This is Tha. She is 44 years old and married with three children. She lives with her husband and children in their own home, located in Kampong Thom province. To secure the overall welfare of her family, Tha is in two business ventures: farming and selling vegetables in her village. She also has an additional income from her husband who works in the construction industry.
In order to help her in farming business, Tha is seeking a loan of 1,500 US Dollars to buy a plowing machine for the maintenance of the rice fields. Moreover, she can use this machine to attach to a trailer to load chopped firewood to sell. This will enable her to boost her income so she can satisfy their basic necessities.
