No is a farmer. Her husband is an animal seller. Their income is $15 per day. She has two children, 12 and 9 years old. Both of the children are studying. Every month she has to spend $35 on food, $10 on school fees, $5 on house rental fee, and $5 on electricity. She would like to request a loan of $1,000 to buy cattle to sell. Before, her husband was only doing farming but the income was not good so he tried to find another career to do besides farming. Therefore, he started to buy and resell animals and he found he could make a good income. Her husband likes this career and will buy and resell more cattle if he has enough money to do it. She expects to send all of her children to study in the university when they grow up.
