Because of income, Mrs. Sop S., age 58, sells both used and new clothes at the local busy market. From that she is able to feed her family. She doesn’t have a life partner as her husband divorced her when her child was very small. Now her child is grown and can support the family by selling a few groceries.
Recently Sop S. sold nearly all her inventory to her buyers and she wants to replenish her stock but she lacks capital. She is therefore asking for a loan in order to buy more clothes to resell.
