Mrs. Kroch has been in the farming business for years. She plants various crops to earn a living and usually generates an income of $2.50 per day. Her husband works with her in the farm field, in addition to his job as a construction worker. Mrs. Kroch also raises piglets behind her house to earn extra income.
Because the pig-raising business is a very profitable one for Mrs. Kroch and her family, she has requested a loan in order to buy additional feed and piglets to raise for sale. Mrs. Kroch has two children, one is single and the other one is married.
