Lach's story

Lach is a 47-year-old married woman who has been raising piglets as her main source of income for ages, followed by a rice farming business.

When the piglets mature, she usually sells them to butchers who come into her village. For additional income, Lach owns a general store, selling a mixture of various things in front of her house.

Another main income is from her spouse, who is operating a firewood-trading business. He typically generates about 7.20 USD per day. Lach has five children: the oldest one is already married; two of them have jobs while the other two are still attending school. She needs to pay daily allowances for her two school-aged children.

As of now, Lach would like to borrow 1,500 USD to purchase two buffaloes for farming tasks as well as for pulling the firewood trailer.

She hopes to improve her family-owned businesses and yield more revenue to ensure a good living standard for her family.
