Trob, 33, is an animal seller. Her husband works in SIMAX organization. Their income is $7 per day. They have 4 children, three of whom are studying. Every month she has to spend $37.5 on food, $10 on electricity and $12 on school fees. She would like to request a loan of $1000 to buy pigs and pigfeed. Previously she was a cake seller but her income was not enough to support her. Therefore, she changed to raising animals because she saw other people doing this and earning a good income. She tries to follow this example and also become successful in this career. In the future she plans to raise more pigs and other animals to sell so that she can support all her children through university when they finish high school.
