Teat V. told a loan officer that she spends US$40 on food and US$15 on her children’s education every month. In her village, people depend heavily on batteries to power their lights, TV, radio and other appliances, so the battery-recharging business is a profitable one. Teat V. is requesting a loan of US$1,000 to purchase charging tools, a generator and a motorbike to help her husband in this business activity.
