Her husband, Sam Chuk, 38, is a rice farmer and palm climber. He makes around US$1.6 per day. He told to a loan officer that his farm is just to have enough to eat from day to day and mostly the profit is from the sugar palm business. Everyday he collects palm juice and then boils it into palm sugar and sells it in the market.
Mrs. Bin is asking a loan of US$500 to invest in her business by adding to the number of rice noodles she makes, and the rest of the money is to be used to purchase fertilizers for her husband's farm.
