Mrs. Chroeb C. is a grocer. She would like to improve and increase her income to support her family so she decided to ask for a loan from AMK to start a new business selling tamarinds (the pods of a tree, widely used as a flavoring in Asian cooking). She would like to use the rest of the loan to buy a motorbike to transport tamarinds to re-sell.
