Sophea TOUCH

Cambodia

Subsistence farming is obviously seasonal, so every few months the soil must be replenished. Sophea lives in a rural village with her husband and three children. The family has a small plot of land where they cultivate different types of crops. As she has to meet the family’s daily needs from these, they want to ensure they get the maximum yield from their land. So to help assure a good harvest, Sophea requests a loan to buy seeds as essential seasonal inputs.

Kea CHAN

Cambodia

Kea works alongside her husband in their rice paddy. The yield from their crop earns the couple about $8 a day and with this they provide the necessities for their two children. Kea (38) is seeking a loan to buy fertiliser. A bigger rice crop will improve the family’s standard of living and higher quality grain will attract a better price at market. With a good harvest, the couple look forward to providing more adequately for their family.

Adelfa Distor

Philippines

Cultivating vegetables in her market garden keeps Adelfa (50) very busy. She earns about $5 a day for her efforts, supplementing her husband’s wage. Unpredictable weather and pest control problems mean Adelfa’s income is vulnerable. To grow more and better quality vegetables, she seeks a loan to buy pesticides and fertilisers for her next crop. Adelfa intends to spend the income maintaining her plot and ensuring her children’s education.

Lend

Ofa Niko

Tonga

Ofa (41) has five children and weaves high-quality ta’ovala for a living. When dressing formally, local people wear these garments around the waist. Formal ta’ovala are treasured and often handed down from generation to generation. Her husband works as a carpenter but their combined income is still barely enough to meet their needs. Ofa seeks a loan to buy more materials, and hopes that increased output will generate more income. With more income, the couple hope to educate all their children.
