A loan of $1,200 helped to buy musical instruments to sell.


Yon's story

Yon is 56 years old. She sells musical instruments with her husband earning $8 per day. They have four children; one is studying and the other three are working in a factory each earning $3 per day. Every month, she has to spend $144 on food, $15 on school fees, and $10 on other expenses. She would like to request a loan of $1200 to buy musical instruments to sell. The couple doesn’t want to change their career because they have been selling instruments since 2000 and this career can make good income and is not so tiring.
