Mrs. Chanthorn C. married in 1989. She has four children, three sons and one daughter. She has been in the business of purchasing and reselling longan fruit since 2003. In addition, she grows food crops. Her husband is a construction worker. He sometimes goes far from home. The elder two children are attending primary school and the other two are still at home. Mrs. C. hopes to expand her business so they can afford for their children to pursue higher education.

Mrs. C. is requesting a loan from MAXIMA for the first time; she hopes to receive US$ 1,000. She will use some of that amount to buy longan on contract to resell in the market in the city. The rest of the money will be used to change her motorbike so that she can better carry the longan to the market.
