Mr. Ek, age 49, is a farmer. His wife, age 46, is a grocery seller in the village. Mr. Ek is the head of a family of five children. He and his wife earn about $6 daily to support the family, which is not enough, so some of the children help provide additional monthly income.
In order to offer his family greater prosperity in the future and to better support his family at present, Mr. Ek would like to request a loan in the amount of $1,100 in order to purchase land.
