Chuy S., 35, is a good housewife who stays at home cooking food for her family members. She also owns a plot of farmland where she grows rice to earn a living and is able to make US$4 each day. Her husband, Lach Leang, 32, is a cow dealer and typically earns US$13 in revenue each day. This couple has three children, one of whom is a student and the other two are too young to attend school. Chuy is asking for a loan of US$1000 to purchase cows for her husband's business.
