Bun S. is 84-year-old woman who stays at home in order to do a little bit house works. She has no life partner, because her husband passed away years ago. Bun S. currently lives with her children, who are employed at a factory as sewing worker; they always contribute their salary to Bun S. to use in the whole family. In the past time, Bun S.’s employed children have been faced with transportation difficulties. They go to work by taxi or walking, because they have no vehicle. To solve this problem, Bun S. would like to request a loan to buy a used motorbike for her kids to use for commuting to their work locations.
