Mrs. Nang M., 33, has been making rattan cupboards from home to generate income. She is a married mother and is blessed with two kids. Both of them are too young to go to school.
Another source of family income comes from her husband who buys and sells used goods. He uses his old vehicle as transportation in his business. Recently, the vehicle has frequently broken down. This impacts on the income from his business. Therefore, Nang M. has requested a loan of $500 to replace the old vehicle.
