For taro plantation owner Tin, her family of six is her main priority and because of this, she does everything to provide for them, no matter what. When she first heard about SPBD, she requested assistance and with her first loan, purchased supplies to start her business. Thus, the business is flourishing and she would like to buy chemicals and fertilizers to ensure that the products are of the best quality. Money from the sales will help to take care of her family.
