S. Chat is 34 year old wife and mother of two daughters. Her oldest daughter attends school, and her younger one stays home. She and her husband run a shop where they resell a wide range of plastic spare parts. They earn about $7.50 a day from this business.
They are confident that S. Chat could run this business on her own, and would like for her husband to earn additional income through other employment. They are requesting this loan of $600 to purchase a motorbike so that he can be a motorbike taxi driver. This would allow them to increase their income and standard of living.
This is S. Chat\'s 4th loan with CREDIT and she does not think she will have any trouble repaying it. In the future she would like to expand her spare parts business, and earn enough money to send her younger daughter to school.
