Chan has encountered difficulties in living especially in this rainy season because there are gaps on her thatched roof, which allow the drops of the rain to come into her house. She wants to replace her roof with tiles and make it comfortable for her family. So now, she would like to take out a loan from HKL to purchase tiles to re-cover her roof. In the future, she plans to save money to reconstruct her house and make it stronger.
