Chou's story

Making baskets is a part of 48-year-old Mrs. Chou’s daily routine. She and her husband currently buy raw materials to make baskets to sell at the mobile place. They also buy baskets from other weavers at a reasonable price and resell them to gain extra profits. They have done this since 1990. Mrs. Chou has five children. Three of her children are employed as garment workers. Mrs. Chou will be using her loan to add to her personal savings to buy a plot of her neighbor’s farmland near her house, which is a good location for farming. The loan will offer her an additional new asset. Mrs. Chou and her granddaughter are shown in the photograph.
