Yonn C. is 27 years old, married, and has one child who attends the local public school. She and her husband are working in the same business as potato and salt traders. They sell their products to their villagers and in other provinces for income. They use their old motor-trailer to pick up their items for sale. On average, this couple earns $10.50 a day from this business, and it can support their family. Unfortunately, their motor-trailer broke down while they were working. Yonn C. wishes to buy another one, but her savings are not enough to make the purchase. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to purchase a motor-trailer to replace the broken one.
