Vann, 52 years old, is a tailor. Her husband is a motor taxi driver. They are married with two children and they are now working in Thailand.
This family can make $17.5 per day, and they spend it on food, $60; electricity, $4; and other things, $5.
Vann would like to request a loan of $1,000 to repair her house to make it more comfortable for her career as a tailor. After this loan she expects that her family will get more income and will live in better a situation than now. She plans to buy a new sewing machine and another machine that is related to her career.
