Marie Claudine sells fertilizers for a variety of plants including wheat, carrots, and some fruits. She has been in this business for over five years and plans to use this loan to expand the types of fertilizers she carries, including fertilizers for cabbage. She also plans to buy seeds and insecticides to sell to local farmers. The seeds Marie Claudine will purchase are sealed in tin cans and last for a long time. With the profits she hopes to purchase a cow to ensure a constant supply of milk for her family, and eventually she anticipates buying a house so she no longer has to rent.
