Seng's story

S., age 22, is a young mother caring for one lovely baby. She married her husband in early 2007, and they live away from their parents' homes. S. raises some poultry to sell, while her young husband earns a living as a fisherman. In addition, S. and her husband also have a farming business. S. has known the basics of cultivating rice since she was single – a skill she learned from her grandparents.

It is the farming season and the time for S. to grow a rice crop, but she lacks some farm supplies. Therefore, she is applying for a loan to buy a water buffalo to plow her field, and for fertilizers and rice seed to grow.
