Mrs. S. R. is 29 years old. She stays at home to take care of her two children and is responsible for the daily routine. She currently relies on income from her husband's taxi business and uses this income to manage the entire family's daily food. Her husband owns a car to provide a taxi service. S. R.'s husband can't generate as much profit as before because their old taxi is not attractive. Because of this bad condition, S. R. is applying for a $1200 loan to add to her savings to replace their existing taxi. She also proposes to run a suitable business as a fake jewelry seller in the market using some of this loan.
