The survey’s results indicated that the households are accessing more loans from co-operatives, micro-credit institutions and financial NGOs.

Immortality is something can be existed after people's physical body died.With the help of god,something like soul or spirit can be preserved and exist forever is immortality. Continuer is not the same person as the original deceased person , it is just a fissioned one,which lives in another space,is the continue existence of the deceased. Spatial-temporal continuity is the necessary condition of personal identity. Also,it provides the possibility for the immortality. 3.(1)From wikipedia,Peter van Inwagen (born September 21, 1942, United States) is an American analytic philosopher and the John Cardinal O'Hara Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.
