Ingrid has a business where she raises and sells chickens. She started off a couple of months ago when her husband gave her $20 to invest in 60 chicks. With another $20 she had in savings she bought the chicken feed and set up her backyard as the raising grounds. The chickens have already been pre-sold to her clients and they will be ready for delivery in early December.
She is looking to take out a second loan in order to invest in 300 more chicks for her operation. She will also need to buy feed and prepare her backyard. Ingrid is a mother of 3 small children. Her husband is a handy man and helped her build the cages for the chicks.
