Mrs. Yen is a hardworking woman, 27 years old. She is married and has three children. She works very hard to feed and educate her children. She would like to improve her family’s living standard, especially her children's, but she lacks capital. The loan can help her to build a sanitation latrine, and she is able to repay the loan with income from cultivation and husbandry.
