Houn, aged 32, has two school-aged children and needs to pay for their daily allowances. She wants to make consistent profits for their education and also to help them earn a degree, so they might have good jobs someday. Houn is a small entrepreneur who owns a few plots of farmland where she plants rice and various kinds of seasonal crops to sell each season. Houn’s spouse helps his family with the income from his hard work in the construction field.
She wants to help her husband in his transportation needs. As they don’t have any vehicle for commuting, they have to pay for taxi service daily to go back and forth. That is why she is asking for additional capital to purchase a motorcycle for household use as well as for support in their business. This loan will help her improve her living conditions.
