Vueon is 30 years old, married, and has one child. She is a pig feeder earning $5 per day. Her husband is a construction worker who also earns $5 per day. Every month she has to spend $50 on food and $20 on other expenses.
Vueon is requesting a loan for $1,000, which she will use to buy pigs and feed. She wants to increase her pig supply with the loan because she can earn a good income for her family selling pigs and use her knowledge in this area to increase sales.
