Sim S. has asked for a loan of US$1000 to make two investments. First, she would like to purchase some tools and materials for her husband to start an ice cream business. He already knows how to make ice cream and could earn extra income by selling ice cream after work. With any leftover money, the family would like to repair their home. There are some areas of their home that are in definite need of repair and the family lacks the capital necessary to complete some of these projects.
Sim S. was unavailable for a photograph at the time of the interview, so her husband, Nov Dout, is pictured above.
