Samat's story

Samat is 30 years old and is a married woman with two children. She sells food. Her husband is a motor driver. For ten months, she has been running this business, and her major challenge is more competitors.

She will use this loan to buy rice, meat and vegetables for making food to sell in her store. This loan will help her make more income and change her family's living standard. In the future, Samat wants to renovate her house and send her children to get a higher education.
