Mrs. S. is 26, married and the mother of one lovely young child who is enrolled in school. She owns a small rattan-selling business. She always collects rattan cupboards in bulk from her nearby neighbors and then takes them to sell door-to-door in the community. Her husband assists her in selling the products.
Recently, S. got many orders for rattan cupboards from her regular clients but she doesn’t have enough items to serve them. In order to help solve that, S. decided to seek a loan of US$ 1000 to be used to purchase additional rattan cupboards to better meet any orders from her customers.
