Nary, 55 years old, is a grocery seller who earns $5 per day. She is a single mother and lives at home alone because all of her children are working far from home.
Every month, she has to spend $40 on food and $15 on other expenses. She would like to request a loan of $1,200 to buy more grocery goods to sell in her small store. Before, she was a tailor, but she quit to sell grocery items at home instead so that she could make more income.
