Mrs. Tik T., 41, is married with seven children and works as a rice farmer. She earns approximately three dollars per day. In her area, she can grow rice twice a year, dry season and rainy season. The process of growing rice in the dry season takes six months from planting to harvesting. In the rainy season, the process takes three months.

Mrs. Tik T. is requesting a loan to purchase piglets to breed during the time when she is not harvesting rice. This would provide her family with some additional income.
