Khan is a loving father of five children, two of whom are still enrolled in a local school. He is 41 years old and married. Khan owns a few lots of farmland, on which he grows rice to support the whole family as food. He has managed a rice farming business which has become the primary source of income for almost 12 years. Khan is glad because he has his wife's support in the business. She helps him keep their family out of hunger and poverty.
Khan wishes to make improvements to his business and better his family’s living situations. So now, he is requesting a loan of USD 1,000 to buy a motorcycle for home use and their personal purposes. This purchase will help in providing good transportation services for his family. In the future, he wants to maintain and expand his business activities to satisfy his family’s needs.
