A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a corn throwing machine.

Touch's story

Touch, 38 years old, is a farmer. Her husband plants corn to sell; their income is $8 per day. They have four children, aged 21, 15, 13, and 3 years old; two are studying and one is working in a factory. Every month, Touch has to spend $27 on food, $10 on electricity, $7 on school fees, $15 on transportation, and $15 on other expenses. She would like to request a loan of $1200 to buy a corn throwing machine to help make her husband’s career easier. Her husband wants to buy more land on which to plant other fruit to sell to earn more profit as their children will need a lot of money for their schooling.
