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.
