Nam is a 45-year-old farmer who is working on 1 hectare of land. As other inhabitants, she primarily grows rice to sell in the local markets. With the help from her husband, she has been involved in this occupation for almost 28 years and is able to make an income of USD $5 per day.
Nam needs much economic assistance in order to improve her income. This is why she’s asking for a loan to buy a piece of land to improve her farming productivity. She hopes to get a good harvest in years to come and meet the needs of her family with the profits.
