A loan of $1,200 helped invest US$ 500 in her farm and US$ 700 into her livestock.

Bun's story

Bun C. is 37 years old and works on a plot of land growing rice to earn a living to support her family. She also raises pigs to earn an extra income as well.

Planting rice has been a difficult job, as there is high inflation and weather conditions have not been conducive to a good growing season. In most of the provinces there are no irrigation systems yet, so farmers have to farm by depending on the sky. They all are very happy when they see the clouds are dark but if there is no rain they will face crop damage.

On average, Bun C. is able to earn around $7 each day. She has three children and all of them are students. She told a loan officer that she wants all her children to take a higher class. She does not want her children to grow rice like her because this work is so difficult and you earn less to support the family.

Bun C. is asking for a loan of US$ 1200 to invest in her existing business. She would like to both invest US$ 500 in her farm, and also put US$ 700 into raising animals, increasing her livestock. She sees these investments as opportunities that will be able to increase her daily income.
