Mr. Suong P., 28, owns a garage to repair vehicles. He started his investment in 2005. His wife's name is Nang. She is 18. They have just married and have one lovely young child who is still not enrolled in school. The family has been facing difficulty with transportation for a long time. They need to pay a lot for taxis. Therefore, Mr. P. has decided to seek an $1100 loan in order to purchase a car for his family's needs as well as use it to support his business activities. (P.'s wife is pictured because he was not available that day.)
