In the areas surveyed by Save the Children, more than 50 percent of households took out a loan just to buy food.

This came as a particular shock to their director of programme development, quality and advocacy, Katy Welby.

"I think this really highlights the terrible condition that people are living in - if they can borrow money then they can feed their kids; if they cannot pay it back and cannot borrow again, then they will not eat," she tells Al Jazeera.

Their research also shows that 50 percent of children drop out of school at the age of 13.

She is not the only one to be crippled by high interest loans in Yangon.

She used to sell vegetables from a stall outside her house, which she shared with her father and two children while her husband worked abroad as a fisherman.

She made just enough money to feed the family, until both her father and husband died.

In a recent survey of three townships, Save the Children discovered that 85 percent of households have taken out a loan from a local moneylender.
