Marianne and her husband agreed to request for a larger loan so that they can purchase a brand new motorcycle. The repairs to the old one would cost a huge amount of money. Some of the money will be spent for repairs and repainting of the sidecar. Marianne is hopeful that once they have all these for their business, their income will grow and she will be able to have a savings fund. She hopes to save enough money to build their own house someday on the land owned by her husband's parents. Their old motorcycle will still be operating as a rental to have more profits to support her only child’s education until graduating from college.
