Rous is 42, married, and has five children. She is a very smart and hardworking housewife, who takes responsibility for most of the non-financial matters in her household, such as maintaining the home and caring for the children. Her husband is the main income provider and he usually works at construction sites to earn income to support the family.
Rous has saved some money so she can buy a motorcycle for the household, but she doesn't have enough. Thus, she is requesting a loan in the amount of $1,000 US dollars. She really needs this motorcycle to assist her husband and two employed children in commuting to their workplaces. She awaits the kind assistance of Kiva lenders and thanks them in advance.
