After realizing that raising cattle has low returns, he decided to sell off some of the cows and start a shop. He has been in business for five years. He has a challenge of bad debtors, and his future plan is to have a wholesale shop. Edison intends to use the loan to buy rice, paraffin, and match boxes.
