Mrs. Yea S., age 33, works selling gasoline and sugar cane juice on the road side of her community, making about $1 each day of profit. Her husband is a construction foreman earning $5 per day. She has three children who are too young to attend school. She would like to request this loan of $1000 in order to purchase gasoline and a machine to produce sugar cane juice, which will be faster than squeezing sugar cane juice by hand.
