Mom S. is a 42-year-old married woman who lives in Takhmao City. She owns a piece of land that she inherited from her grandmother. She grows different kinds of crops on her land, such as cabbages, cucumbers and morning glories, which she sells every two or three months when the plants mature.
Mom S.'s husband is a construction worker in and around her community. The couple has four children; all of them are single.
Mom S.'s motorbike is old and she needs to repair it very often. Because her savings account is not enough to buy a new motorbike, she is requesting some money to add to her personal savings so that she can buy a new motorbike to replace the broken one.
