Mrs. Luy P., 67, sells grilled bananas to earn a living and lives with her husband and four children who are students. From her business she is able to generate $5 each day to cover the financial problems of her family. One of her kids is working as a chef for weddings.
Luy P.’s husband, Mr. Moul Phat, is a fish-seller who goes to buy the fish from his wholesale suppliers who are fishermen at the river. Her husband complains he always pays a lot of money for fish delivery fees and has a goal to have a vehicle so that he can cut down on hiring fees.
Therefore, Luy P. requests a loan to add to her savings to buy a motorbike for her husband to pick up the fish from the river to sell at the market.
