Matilda is applying for a loan of $1,200 from TRM (Tuba Rai Metin). She is 38 years old and married.

This stock includes soft drinks (Fanta, Coca Cola, Sprite, Sagiko), alcoholic drinks (beer), cigarettes, sugar, coffee, salt, eggs, noodles, water, slippers, fish, biscuits, and rice. She is making good money from selling goods and she wants to apply for a larger loan in the future.

Matilda is living in a town nearby the school. Her kiosk is located in a strategic place where many people come to buy goods, including students. She has a very simple house because her husband was a farmer and had animals such as horses, buffaloes, and chickens.
