R. operates a meat inspection laboratory in her town. She got permission from the government and began to operate her business in 1998. She examines samples of all the meat products in the local markets for quality and cleanliness. For each sample she takes, she is paid about 50 cents. She is proud that she provides a valuable service to her community by protecting her neighbors from potentially dangerous food.
She says, “I want to continue to pay the tuition fees for my children and I want them to be educated young adults with a great passion and enthusiasm for life.”
She is planning to expand her laboratory and to buy new tools in order to increase the quality of her service. She is requesting a 1,000,000 tugrug (~700 USD) loan in order to purchase new, high-tech tools for her meat inspection business.
