Morn, 52 years old, is a farmer with an income of $2 per day. She is a single mother with three children, but only one lives with her. There are six members in her family, including her daughter-in-law and three grandsons.
Her son is a motor taxi driver making $8 a day. Every month, she has to spend $50 on food, and $20 on transportation. She would like to request a loan of $600 to buy a cow, which she will breed in order to sell its calves. When she saves more money, she plans to start a small grocery shop in front of her house with her daughter.
