Mrs. Dim H. is 27 years old and a resident of the province of Kompong Tom, where she earns an income by making furniture for sale including those made from rattan. She usually sells her wares in bulk to her regular buyers who come to buy at her house, and they order a few days or a week in advance. Her husband is skilled as a carpenter and helps her in making furniture as well.

The couple has two young children who are still living in the family home. Because the family's house is too old and is collapsing frequently, Mrs. H. has decided to seek a loan of $1200 to add to her personal savings in order to build a new house. The loan will help the family attain a better standard of living.
