Phally, 41 years old, is a housewife. Her husband is a village chief who earns $5 per day. They have three children. One is studying and two are working, earning $10 per day in all.
Every month Phally has to spend $50 on food, $10 on electricity, $10 on school fees, $10 on transportation, and $10 on other expenses.
Phally would like to request a loan of $400 to buy a motorbike for her husband so he can travel to work. She doesn’t have any plans yet for a career because she doesn’t have enough money.
