Yut S. is an older village woman and a widow - her husband died of senility years ago. She currently lives with a daughter, as her two other children are married and have already started new family homes. To earn a living, Yut S. cultivates a rice crop and has been farming since 1979, while her daughter sells a few grocery items for a profit. In the past, Yut S. hired a farmer’s cow to help plow her farmland. She hopes to reduce her farm expenses by using a Kiva loan to buy a pair of cows for plowing. With the remainder of the loan she will support her daughter’s grocery business. She and her daughter are pictured.
