This member is 27 years old, married, and has two children, nine and seven years old, who study in a city school. Her husband works in an autobody shop fixing cars. They do not have their own home, so they lease.

She has been in the communal bank for seven years, in which time she has formed many friendships. She will invest the loan in the purchase of chickens and feed. Her dream is to have her own house.
