She requests the loan to buy farming supplies: fertilizers and manure, for her crops. The loan will help her meet her economic needs and improve her farming activities. She faces challenges like the drop in price of the products she sells as well as dealing with middlemen. Her dream is to have a house of her own. She enjoys going on outings with her children.
