Mrs. Rin R. is 31 years old and married, with four school-aged kids who are dependent on her. For the past fifteen years, she has been planting crops in the village. In the business, she grows crops like rice and local vegetables. As another source of family income, her husband makes a daily revenue by working as a medical doctor. He usually goes to examine patients who are his nearby neighbors.
Presently he doesn’t have enough medical supplies to furnish an examination room for his work. Therefore, Rin R. has requested a loan for her husband to purchase the required articles. (Rin R. was busy working on the farm when the photo taken, so her husband is shown instead.)
