Tening is a married woman. She is mother to three children of whom two go to primary school. For several years she has been practicing sheep fattening and raises sheep that she then sells at the market. But for a year, she has gone into cattle fattening which brings in more money. Thus she is buying an ox that she will fatten then resell. This business allows her to correctly meet her needs and even support her husband. In order to manage a new fattening operation, she is requesting a loan of 30,000f from UIMCEC to buy an ox. She aims to increase the number of heads of cattle in the future.
