Banex, a married young man of 25 years, with one child, is from a humble background. He did not go far with school because his parents could not afford to pay his high school tuition. However, he got lucky because he recently found a contract job as a casual laborer with the construction firm working on the road leading to his town. He thinks that he will be able to save some of his wages to pay the monthly installments of the loan that he is using to pay for a piece of land.

He hopes to start making bricks after buying the plot of land, so that he can put up a shelter for his young family very soon. Banex is a hard-working, young man who wants to work hard, so that he can provide the best for his child, especially in terms of education.

Banex is standing in the center, between his parents on the left and his wife and credit officer on the right. They all consented to the photo and signed the waiver form.
