Sewing clothes are the main part of 23-year-old Mrs. Yet S.’s daily duties in the garment industry. Yet S. has been engaged in her job since 2008 and receives $90 a month. She has a life partner in her husband (pictured) who has skills in repairing electronic materials. The couple helps each other to earn money to feed their two children. Both of the children attend school.
S.’s husband is very busy in his business activities. However, he needs more materials to perform his service. Because he lacks funds, Mrs. Yet S. has decided to request a loan for her husband to use to buy any materials required.
