Translated by a Kiva volunteer.

Agée de 55 ans, Madame G. Sodahoin est revendeuse de légumes et piments. Devenue sourde à la suite d’une longue maladie, elle a été abandonnée par son mari à cause de ce handicap. Pour subvenir à ses besoins, elle est obligée d’aller acheter les légumes et piments à crédit chez les jardiniers et de les revendre. Le peu de bénéfice suffit à peine à nourrir une bouche. Aussi Madame G. et ses quatre (4) enfants vivent-ils dans une extrême pauvreté. Dynamique et populaire, elle sollicite un crédit de $750 pour accroître ses revenus et sortir ses enfants de cette situation.
