They are asking for a loan of approximately 500.000 Gs [each] and they will use the money to expand the work they are already doing, like: buying fabric, buying ingredients to make prepared food, buying milk, sugar, tea, flour, salt, baked items, and vegetables for resale, buying and selling drinks like soda, beer, wine, etc. They will double their efforts to earn more income and diminish their household needs.
