Zonie O. is a 44-year-old married mother of three. Two of her children are in college, and one is in high school. Zonie will use the money from this loan to buy more dried fish for re-sale, a venture she started with money she earned from retailing rice. She sets up her dried fish stall on a corner in three different towns on market days, and while business is good, travel is often difficult because she lacks her own means of transportation. She hopes to be able to save enough to buy a truck so she can haul her goods to and from the market more easily. Zonie also wants to have enough income to support the rest of her children's education.
