Chit C., 28, has had a job for years selling various kinds of fruit by mobile transportation. She typically generates an income of $40 each day to meet her family's daily food needs. She is married but has no children. Her husband works at fishing in the Public Pond of their community for income.
The family is always paying much money taking taxis because they do not own a vehicle. Therefore, Chit C. has decided to seek an $800 loan in order to purchase a new motorcycle for her family’s riding needs, as well as for her to use to pick up her vegetables to sell more quickly.
