Ruth lives in Compound #3. She is 35 years old, married, and has four children between 5 to 20 years old who are in school and live at home. She stopped her education in the 6th grade. Her husband is a businessman.
Since 2005, she has been running a shop where she sells drinks, rice by the bag, oil, mattresses, and other items. Ruth says that some of the problem she faces is that most of the demands from her customers are not available in stock.
She is requesting a loan to purchase more drinks, rice, oil, mattresses, and other items for her business. In the near future, she wants to send her children to college, build a house, and expand her business.
