C. is a 32-year-old woman who has married with two children, both of whom are still young. They help with her work when they have free time from studying. She makes a living selling used goods. She normally uses her old motorbike to collect used goods from door-to-door in her community. She then stores them a while and re-sells them to make a profit. She is married to Yeout, 45, who works with her in the business. The family's living conditions are not so good because their house is too small for them. Therefore, C. is asking for a loan that she will add to her personal savings to build a new house. The loan will help the family to have a better standard of living.
